Yesterday Kelley hiked with friends and their dog and I was not along.
Sunny and 42. First choice was Perch Pond but we couldn't get off the road to park at either of the trailheads on Kirkland Rd.- also the trails had had no use. Next stop Marsh Island where we knew we could park.
The trails were mostly in good shape with packed snow.
Kelley did not want to follow the usual route so we ended up on unfamiliar trails with no signs, hence the question mark on the map. Eventually we crossed a know trail and I think Kelley was glad as the other trails had had little use and were harder walking.
Not much water but water
She usually gets in this stream but the snow kept her out today
The Penobscot was high and the banks steeper than usual
but she got in.
From there we headed back. Nice hike on a pretty day. Except for a single biker we had the place to ourselves and Kelley did well.
