11/19/16 Little Long Pond

Old map of the hike we did today. Still can't process pictures.

Decided to go  to Acadia because Kelley likes it and there is no hunting allowed. A real Maine weather day. Dense fog and 37 degrees when we left home, start of hike -  Sun and 43, end of hike - cloudy and 53, back home sun and clouds and 41.

First stop for Kelley was, of course the pond. Then as we walked along the carriage road to the West Side Trail she saw two men beside the road and we had to go up and greet them. Then another dip in the pond and the woods of the trail.When we came out of the woods and were crossing the meadow there was a man and his dog up  above and the dog was friendly and came down to greet us. Back in the woods we met a nice couple and their dog and chatted about trails that didn't require a leash and I learned about a new one. We continued to the first trail that crosses Jordan Stream - it takes you to the carriage road on the east side and then the carraige rd. back to the start, meeting more people and dogs. Kelly was not as energetic as on our last hike but did OK and enjoyed all the people and water. 1 1/2 hours


  1. Sure am missing those photos! But, sounds like a nice hike--lots of visiting for Kelley, so all good!

    1. Thanks Sue- I'm dragging my feet on new computer to avoid dealing with it. Rain all day yesterday and more today with possible snow
