2/15/18 Friendship Path Long Pond

We have continued to have ups and downs in temperature and precipitation, making it a tough year for us- especially as we age. Today supposed to get to lower forties so we headed back to the area above Long Pond that we had hiked last, which had good footing.

Close to the parking area is a small stream that was not frozen.

The carriage roads looked icy so we tried the Friendship Path

Patches of ice that could be worked around

Until this section where we turned back

Decided to check a little further on the carriage roads but they were impossible. Kelley didn't even follow me.

She had gone back to the little stream. At this point we gave up and settled for the short hike we had done. This was disappointing as when we arrived Kelley had got out of the car without encouragement. 


  1. Difficult to go hiking when it's so icy! Hope for better conditions soon.

    1. Thanks Linda - been a hard winter for us so far - it's really been up and down - snow tonight and then up to 50 by Tues.
