2/9/18 Carriage Roads Around Long Pond

Forecast is for several days of snow, rain, and sleet so we headed to Acadia to try and get a hike in. At Little Long Pond Kelley wouldn't get out of the car. Went to a nearby parking spot to see if she would get out there. . After some encouragement she got out and I decided to go with the carriage roads which I thought would be easier for Kelley.

This was much better than our last hike - packed crusty snow with good footing,

The ice was in the ditches beside the roads,

Kelley did well and even took the lead at times.

There is a small stream near the parking area and Kelley always gets into it so she is nice and wet for the car.

A nice little hike and it was good we got one in because the bad weather came as forecast.


  1. Do you keep a towel in the car?
    We have fog tonight up here and supposed to have freezing rain tomorrow

    1. Yes, a large one on a plastic sheet. we have freezing rain forecast too- miserable-don't mind the snow but the ice is a problem.

  2. Same here regarding ice and snow. No rain at all up here yet

    1. No rain here either - just gray skies and slush
