August 17 – Bog Walk Completed, Millers Visit and Trail Brushing

We finished the bog walk along the beaver dam pond last week. Our leader has another bog walk to work on this Thursday. : ) Last Saturday morning, we brushed the hiking trails on the Great Head peninsula, the same trails that we had enjoyed with our visitors.

Our visit by our friends, Janet and Art Miller from our Florida, was very pleasant. We gave them the island tour: Jordan Pond for a carriage road walk and popovers, Cadillac Mountain for an overview of the island, a wet and muddy hike along the Tarn Pond and a dry walk over our recently completed bog walk and a hike on Great Head peninsula to sit by the ocean and view Sand Beach from above.

Janet and Art learned how to flag down the LL Bean bus from their motel site and joined us on the bus to visit Bar Harbor for dinner and touring the harbor and walking on the bar at low tide.

The sun is shining today and we are drying out after a day of rain.

Have a great day.
