9/9/17 Hidden Ponds

Mix of sun and clouds and upper 60's. Ideal hiking except for some ominous thunder which made Kelley nervous  ( the rain held off until late afternoon when we were home)

Start of the trail looks like an old woods road

followed by a boggy section

and first chance at the water

Salmon Pond - Kelley couldn't find a way in on this end


but got into Mud Pond

This bush had one bright red branch while the rest of it was still green.

Another part of Salmon Pond

Little Long Pond

I was surprised by the variety of flowers still about.

but leaves are turning

Last chance for water before the car

This turned out to be a very nice hour and three quarter hike. Kelley did better than she has in a long time - often taking the lead. We had the place to ourselves - there was a truck in the parking lot but we met no one
