Our string of gray weather with predicted rain continues and we are reluct to travel very far only to get rained out. 70's but very humid so it felt more like a sauna. We started from the North Trail and found few mosquitoes and only a couple of deer flies - perhaps they are finally done for this year. I'm still aiming for an hour and a half for Kelley.
It doesn't have to be a lot of water
Some nice ferns
Don't know how I got this small pond without Kelley in the picture
She was very happy when we reached the big pond
A section of the Shore Trail
Another chance to get in the pond
There are still a few wildflowers but they are getting a bit ragged.
One of the few butterflies I got this year - it has a couple of fiends
I also got few dragonflies this year so was happy with this one.
and a few more flowers
A nice peaceful hike- we met no one. Kelley did well ,seemingly without problems and I managed to not take any wrong turns. An hour and three quarters was close to our goal.
