6/14/16 Newman Hill-Hinds

On and off rain last 3 days. This morning is 55 degrees,  sun and clouds ( more clouds than sun), and wind which was bad for close ups but meant no bugs.

We got a bit of sun at the start

 and there is a small pond near the start ( not on the map). I think some camera settings I made resulted in Kelley being out of focus.

The geese in the pond did not seem concerned about Kelley

Lots of  bunchberries

We took the little spur over to Pine Pond

 but Kelley finds it easier to get in the smaller pond next to it

We took the old railbed

to where a beaver pond had flooded it. In winter when its frozen we  can continue on

 but today was for Kelley

Another small pond on the way back.

Turned out to be a nice hike. Kelley did well and we had the place to ourselves. 1  1/2 hours 


  1. The rail bed picture is wonderful.

    1. Thank you Kim - I think it's the prettiest part of the trails.

  2. Lovely woods! And nice shot of the bunchberries around that old tree stump.

  3. Really glad to hear that Kelley is doing's been a year since I "lost" Big Ray and I still think of him every day..relish your time with Kelley!

    1. Thanks penbayman - can't believe it's been a year - I do relish my time with Kelley and try not to think about the future
