9/24/16 Perch Pond

Sunny but cool- 47 when we started and 53 at the finish. Kelley was not enthusiastic so this was a short hike. We went out on the old woods road that runs next to the North Trail and returned on the trail.

Mixed lichen on a stump

There have been fewer mushrooms this year - probably because of lack of rain

The tree was still green but this branch was turning

This small pond is smaller each time we visit

 but still water for Kelley

After she got in the water Kelley didn't seem to want to go on so we headed back. Only an hour but it was pleasant and peaceful 


  1. That's perfect hiking weather! Can't wait to see the leaves changing colors.

    1. Yes it is- color change seems late this year- probably because it's been so warm

  2. Looks like you're starting to get fall colors too!

    1. Just starting- most trees are still green - the branch above was on a tree that was otherwise green. I'm ready - I think my favorite season
