9/27/15 Sheepscot Headwaters

Yesterday Kelley did not want to get in the car so we had a day off and I dealt with the garden - possible frost predicted. We didn't get the frost but was in the 30's when we got up. We stalled until it was in the 50's to head out on this beautiful day.

Kelley was energetic and enthusiastic, leading most of the way. We started from the Whitten Hill Trailhead to do the Northern Headwaters Trail.

Just some bark

I considered skipping the section of Goose Ridge but when we reached the junction Kelley started down the trail - probably remembered there  was water - two small streams and a pool near the broken dam.

She refused to cross the small bridges and found ways around - the trail is also a bit overgrown here.

Back to the main trail we reached the river. Water was very low - I'm standing in the streambed

But there were pools.

Heading back up the hill to complete our loop

Nice hike on a pretty day. Kelley did very well and seemed to really enjoy the woods today. 2  1/4 hours 


  1. Glad to see Kelley got lots of swimming in!

    1. Thanks for commenting Linda- getting hard to find hikes with water for her but we have rain in the forecast

  2. It's amazing to me how dogs remember things from back in the day..what wonderful blessings they are to us..

    1. Yes, she remembers spots we stop for apple breaks or lunch and runs ahead and sits down.
