Chose this hike as there are alternatives nearby. Lower twenties but nice and sunny.
First part of the trail was icy and I was beside the trail more than on it.
Kelley managed to get into the small stream near the start - I did poorly with the picture.
The trail conditions improved
Just off the trail we found some more water for her but that picture was even worse than the last and we continued on our way.
The section of trail that goes to Tilden makes a small rise above the ponds but enough for there to be a little snow.
Tilden Pond - frozen, even at the edges.
We walked to the end but still no water
We turned back and I thought we would do the loop trail - added on the map - but Kelley didn't want to so we continued the way we had come.
When we got to the trail that goes to Salmon she was willing. I think she remembered that we usually stopped there for an apple or lunch- depending on the hike. We had an apple as we looked out over the pond.
A pretty day in the woods. I could have done without the ice which was not a problem for Kelley. She did well today. 2 hours
