Nice day for a hike - lower 70's with a mix of sun and clouds. Was worried deer flies might be a problem as one time last year there were so many they drove us out, but only a very few today.
Start of the trail toward the ponds.
We usually bypass the trail to Ducktail and visit Partridge first
Stitched together pano shot- please click for large version
In the pond
Not as sharp as it should be but first of the year
Wet spot in the trail on the way back to the main trail
Not a lot of flowers today but we found some wild iris
Nice hike. Kelley did very well today and was enthusiastic - I think a result of a day off and partly a hike she likes. 2 hours
