9/25/16 Northern Pond

Another cool morning - upper 40s to lower 50s . We hadn't been here in awhile and Kelley likes variety. She was more enthusiastic this morning but I decide to not push her and do a shorter out and back rather than the complete loop we usually do.

The canoe launch. Usually I can only go a short distance and then the logs are floating. Today I got to the end and there was mud before some water. Kelley didn't bother following me.

First place she can get in the pond

But she didn't like the bottom (maybe silted up) and barely went in.

The beaver dam and a lowered pond

 Kelley worked her way out to some shallow water

 but then found some a little deeper

The ferns are turning brown

Kelley is not especially fond of bog bridges and often walks beside them- especially when this narrow - but she used them today - I think because the brush along side was so thick

A mix of sun and clouds but pretty comfortable hiking. Kelley did well and we had the place to ourselves. 1  1/2 hours 


  1. It so different when the water level is down so much..Kelley is a wise girl..

    1. Yes, it is- no relief in sight. Kelley says Hi
