Weird weather continues -yesterday 47 and rain - this morning 16 and quite windy when we started - hoping for better trail conditions and we knew the woods would give us some shelter from the wind.
We started from the trailhead on Rte. 3 and the trails were mostly clear with some small patches of ice that were easily got around.
Kelley even found some water early on.
View from ledge near the top - the summit is tree covered witout views.
We took the trail down to Harbor Brook and it was also in good shape. When we reached the brook and the new bridge we found that work on the new trail had continued on the far side of the stream. I wanted to follow it but Kelley wanted to stick with our usual route and so we did.
The woods and stream were pretty but there was still a fair amount of ice in the stream and that stopped Kelley getting in at several of her usual spots.
The trail was in good shape with only patches of ice.
and Kelley did find spots where she could get in the water
Not many pictures today- contrasty light and the cold kept my coat zipped up. Kelley was enthusiastic and did well - cold seems to not ever be a factor for her. 1 3/4 hours.
