Another hike that guarantees water for Kelley. Sunny and upper 60's at the start- another good day. We haven't done the around the pond trail in a long time. We usually take the trail up Blackcap but it's fairly strenuous and I thought it might not be good for Kelley.
We park near the end of the pond so Kelley gets that right off.
Near start of trail
Another chance at the water
Unfortunately I didn't remember how rocky and difficult this trail becomes and Kelley had to do work arounds and sometimes needed help. The trail here goes between the rocks
Off the trail for a break
Easier sections of the trail
Ah, more water
And one last swim before we head home
We didn't make it around the pond as the trail just got more difficult ( besides the rocks to get over there were several blowdowns to get over and I was concerned for Kelley). In spite of the difficulties she did well and was enthusiastic for the most part. 1 1/2 hours
