Forty five degrees, mix of sun and clouds, and a few sprinkles but a pretty nice day
Trail looked good at the start
Lots of water around ( Kelley was happy) and a small stream I don't remember seeing before
In addition to lots of water there was still snow in spots
The pond had lost much of it's ice.
We usually wade the small stream that comes out of the pond to get to the ledge on the other side but the water was too high today. Kelley got a swim- I didn't get the picture.
On the way back we usually take the side trail to Ducktail Pond but the trail into Partridge had a surprising amount of snow that was difficult for Kelley ( deep enough that breaking through and fell) so we skipped Ducktail.
There was plenty of water to keep Kelley happy
Turned out to be a not bad hike and a nice day in the woods. Kelley did well for the 1 1/2 hour hike.
