1/15/17 Snowmobile Trail Along the Kenduskeag

Still have some snow and ice near home  which means iffy trails, but didn't feel like a long drive so back to this nearby trail. 23 degrees, mostly sunny, and only a little wind.

No one had use the trail since the rain and refreeze so it was an icy glaze over packed snow. A little slippery but not too bad and Kelley seemed OK with it. Didn't take many pictures as I was watching where I stepped

Kelley found some water

and I found some ice

Almost back

Not a bad outing (I only fell once) and Kelley became more comfortable with as we went along. She did well.  1  1/2 hours 


  1. I despise ice (for walking), but wow, what a neat photo, John!
    Be careful out there!

    1. Thanks Sue - we are. Looks like another winter like last year more rain and ice than snow. Makes it really hard to find hikes.

  2. Boy it does look slippery! Cool pic of the ice patterns.

    1. Thanks Linda It was and shaping up to be a bad year for hiking - above freezing highs for next week.
