6/2/16 Little Long Pond

Nice day - around 60, sunny, a breeze, and no bugs. This is probably Kelley's favorite hike so you get mostly pictures of Kelley in the water. There are still few wildflowers and the breeze made them difficult to keep in focus. We saw a few dragonflies but none that would let us get close.

Obligatory shot of the pond

 and Kelley's first dip

 The meadow section of the trail

 Back in the woods there are small streams and pools

When the trail reaches Jordan Stream there is a large pool that I follow the trail around. Kelley swims across and meets me on the other side.

We go up to the carriage road just after we pass under the cobblestone bridge.

There are usually people with their dogs on the carriage road but, at first, we met no one. Then near the end of the hike we met several people and dogs and this made Kelley happy.

There is a small beach area that is for children and dogs are prohibited. The other dogs went in and so Kelley followed.

There are steps she can't manage so I also had to help her up. A nice hike and Kelley did well except for the brief trespass. 2 hours.


  1. Love the footpath through the meadow with the mountain (hill?) in the background. Sounds like a lovely day weatherwise (bugwise!) Have a great weekend

    1. Thanks Sue- it was a lovely day - you have a nice weekend too.
