3/22/16 Newman Hill-Hinds

Mid twenties but sunny and supposed to get to forty. Uncertain about trail conditions we chose something nearby.

Only a skier had preceded us.

The first little pond had thin ice. I broke some and Kelley barely got in - she didn't like the ice and I got a poor picture

Once we got off the ski trail there had been no one before us and the woods were pretty.

Back on the old rail bed - ski tracks

We took the short spur to Pine Pond but it was frozen around the shore too.

The more enclosed part of the old rail bed. Again, no traffic.

The beaver pond had covered part of the  the trail and it was time to turn around

 But Kelley got some water - I got another poor picture of her - I had screwed up others.

Maybe the last of the plants in snow - we hope so anyway.

Heading back

This turned out well. The snow was light because of the cold overnight and made not bad walking. The woods were very pretty and we had them to ourselves. Kelley seemed happy  1  1/2 hours


  1. I know Kelley likes to "meet" others on your walks, but myself---I'd LOVE to have a trail all to myself. Looks like a beautiful day out.
    Still waiting for the Snow to hit the fan here.

    1. Hi Sue - I, like you, prefer to have the woods to myself but you are right about Kelley. Good luck with the snow- we have a small amt. predicted for tomorrow.

  2. You got some really beautiful pictures today John. I can't get over all that new snow.

    1. Thanks Kim - it was pretty but we are ready for spring - possibly some more tomorrow
