7/28/17 Little Long Pond

Beautiful day - sunny and mid 70's. This has been one of Kelley's favorite hikes so that's where we headed. No place to park where we usually start so we went to the parking lot for the Friendship Path. This would make our hike a bit longer but I was optimistic.

Obligatory shot of the pond

Lots of lily pads but not a lot of flowers yet

Kelley was fine with that

Overexposed several flowers but got one

Jordan stream where we took the trail across to the carriage road. Kelley seemed to be getting tired and less enthusiastic

Blueberries are ripening

Some insects

 and flowers

Back to where we started and last chance to get in the water

The path back to the parking lot rises on several sets of stone steps and Kelley was having trouble with them. She was really glad to get back to the car. The hike was longer than planned, 2 1/2 hours, and I was sorry I had made her go that long. After laying around the yard for the rest of the day and a good nights sleep she was fine the next day.
