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
