Glenburn Trails 1/22/17

Warmer than normal weather continues with unpredictable trail conditions - first try the trail started across a large field and most of the snow was gone. OK- Glenburn again. Thirty three degrees, cloudy, and no wind.

Snowmobile trail had a little recent use so the snow was packed but not glazed with ice.

A little color

Lancaster Brook  looked iffy

but snowmobiles had crossed so we did.

At the Kenduskeag it was less clear

and I could see running water so we passed and turned back.

Waiting again

A little more color

Heading back


Near the road Kelley found some muddy icy water. I badly overexposed the picture but had to have one water picture.

Turned out to be a pleasant hike. The woods were pretty and without wind the temp was comfortable. Very peaceful as we met no one. Kelley did very well, taking the lead at times.  1  1/2 hours 


  1. Though there is a lack of colorful things this time of year, you still find interesting objects to photograph.
    Continued fog and gloom here. If it weren't so pretty, a person could get kind of depressed......
    (I'd still like some snow , though!)
