3/13/17 Little Long Pond - again briefly

After the very cold weather, we assumed the local trails would be really icy so we head to Acadia. Thought that if the trails were icy perhaps the carriage roads would be OK. Kelley had not wanted to get in the car but I hoped she would be interested in this hike which is usually one of her favorites.

Twenty degrees and sunny when we arrived. and the pond looked pretty well frozen over

but I could see water at the southwest corner .

which is also the start of the trail we usually take.

We started on the West Side  Trail but soon found it too icy. We then tried the carriage road on that side and it was icy too - less sun reaches the road here - so we headed to the east side

There was running water in the canal that takes water from the pond, under the road, and out into the harbor.

The carriage road on the east side was sunny and clear and we met a couple with their dog, which pleased Kelley/

We didn't get far before Kelley sat down. I persuaded her to go a bit further but she wasn't happy so we just returned to the car and headed home. 


  1. Sometimes plans just don't work out..better days are ahead..just not today..

    1. That's true. Kelley will like the coming snow and it will cover up the ice.

  2. Love the blue skies, even if it was cold. Hope you're weathering the big blizzard!

    1. Thanks Linda - went to the grocery and library yesterday so we are set. So far not near as big as the last but there is lots of time left
