Cooler today but rain forecast later so we got an early start. The last time we were here there were a lot of deer flies; we would check it out and if still a problem go on to Acadia. There were only a few at the start and once we got in the woods none. There was little wind so a good day for close ups and water for Kelley, so lots of pictures.
Kelley found a small stream
a bit behind- I keep going when she is sniffing around and she sometimes keeps going when I stop to photograph.
The lake shore is very rocky and mostly brushy, so it's not always easy for Kelley
but we find place between the rocks
And while she is in the water I look for things along the shore
A little further along the shore
The woods are fairly dense so not much grows on the floor: but once back on the tote road there was lots to see.
Same stream other side of the road
Waiting for me- she kept going a bit while I got the grasshopper
Don't know what these are
Pretty good hike. Kelley did well. few insects, and bearable temps.
Took longer than usual with my picture taking and tromping through brush looking for Kelley spots. She also stayed in the water each time longer than usual. 2 hours
