Hike number 27 was around the meadow and along Statheden and Kebo brook trail. This hike has been done before so no photos were taken. I walked it in an hour and a half with a friend. I often walk with my friend on Sunday’s and it was a rather warm afternoon.
Hike number 28 was a lovely walk. I walked for two hours and fifteen minutes. It was along the Hadlock pond trail and I walked along both ponds. I met a women at the small bridge and talked with her for a bit. Then we finished walking along the pond and enjoyed sharing as we walked. The afternoon was warm but there was a gentle breeze and the stream gave a very cool area to walk. I am thankful to have the experience of first walking along these ponds with my summer friends from Canada. At the beginning of my hike I heard a Swainson thrush. I have not heard this bird before. It was a great walk and good to walk the area with them. Today walking along the area for the second time seemed barely familiar but I walked the path from a different direction and do not
know the area well. It was very quiet where I walked. Though I met a few people along the path it was very peaceful.
A neat bridge along the path.
Interesting mushrooms along the walk. These were just one of the types I photographed.
The stream was running along the path and gave a very cool area to pause on a hot afternoon.
