Cloudy and cool but no wind so it was pretty good hiking. A friend went with us which meant more talking and less picture taking. Kelley seemed enthusiastic- she probably remembered there is water here.
A small pond beside Black Pond - easy for her to get in and out.
A plant beside the pond.
and Black Pond to our right as we bushwhacked from the trail to the old rail bed
Pine Pond has two sections and is at the end of a small spur trail
some grasses along the pond edge
We then followed the old rail bed to where it is flooded due to beaver activity.
