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