Please use the search function ( upper left) to find older posts which have more detailed trail descriptions and pictures. You can also use this to find specific hikes either by trail or mountain.

9/30/16 Partridge and Ducktail Ponds

50 degrees and sunny- no wind- good hiking. Headed here because there was sure water.

Start of the trail showing leaves are still mostly green

Partridge Pond- leaves are just starting to turn

 Kelley  was happy when we reached the pond because the small streams and pools on the way were all dry.

Two shot pano- please click separately for large view

Back in the water

 The pond from the ledge where we had our apple break

Reindeer Lichen and wintergreen

Ducktail Pond looked to be quite low

Kelley avoided the reeds and chose a section of the stream that runs out of the pond

Was only 60 when we finished so a very comfortable hike. We met no one and Kelley did well. 1  1/2 hours 


  1. I love fall hiking! Looks like the colors are just starting where you live.

    1. I like fall too- colors are just starting - a little late this year
