1/9/16 Little long Pond

Around thirty degrees but cloudy. We started from the gate on Rte 3 and Kelley was disappointed to find the pond frozen.

The park had received less snow than we had and the walking was easy

A small stream still flowing

 and then the Jordan Stream where the West trail meets the Jordan Stream Trail

Jordan Stream heading toward the pond

The last time we were her the water was over the banks and we had to bushwhack around, Here you can see how the water has dropped.

Another spot Kelley could get in the water

More sections of the trail and stream

The trail passes under the cobblestone bridge . It continues on to Jordan Pond but we climbed up to the carriage road to head back

Looking across the pond from the carriage road

A very pretty hike on a gray day. Kelley did very well but I think was disappointed that we only met a man by himself and a couple with two dogs. There are usually many more people on the carriage road.  2 hours 


  1. I love your photos of the ice. I suppose soon it will get too cold for Kelley to find water to swim.

    1. Thanks Linda - It get's harder to find water but we usually find some small stream - may not be big enough to swim but she can get wet.

  2. Yayy, Kelly finally found some water. Never too cold for her. I remember last winter's hikes and she always found water to get into even if it was a small puddle, lol

    1. Hi Serafina - You have that right - anywater, any weather.

  3. John, thank you for pointing me again to your blog. This is beautiful.

    1. Thank you Jodie - it really is a pretty spot in Acadia

  4. John,
    Thank for the link back to your blog. This day with photos and words was beautiful. I'll be back!

    1. I'm pleased you like it. Was started to exchange info with other hikers but that never really happened
