So as not to repeat myself excessively, I am reducing the amount of description of trails that have already been posted. Please use the search function ( upper left) to find older posts which have more detailed trail descriptions and pictures. You can also use this to find specific hikes either by trail or mountain.

1/27/18 Hidden Ponds

Cloudy but upper 30's. We still have a fair amount of crusty snow and ice so headed closer to the coast for less snow. There was a lot less snow but still lots of ice, including on the trails.

It wasn't all this bad but still lots of place to pick our way around.



Kelley always gets in the stream near the start but though it was flowing, the ice along the banks stymied her






A smaller stream later on allowed her to get wet and get a drink but that was all.



Salmon Pond was frozen over



As was Mud Pond.


At this point we turn back to pick up the Loop trail around the ponds. At the trail junction,  I asked which way and Kelley started back so that's what we did. She did very well today in spite of less than ideal conditions and we got in a descent little hike.

  1. We still have lots of snow on the ground and our driveway is an ice rink but tomorrow’s 8-12 inches will take care of itπŸ˜‚πŸ˜œ

    1. Hi Serafina - yes, this has been a bad one for ice- the snow is fine.
