Saturday Stroll!

Today was a beautiful day, warm sun and cool breeze, perfect for a hike in the woods. We went back to the pond that we hiked at, last week, but on the opposite side. There are tons of trails so we took the main trail and hiked into Connecticut.

The trail follows the pond, most of the way and winds around as you head towards Connecticut.

Gorgeous views, as we walked along. We walked along the path until we reached Connecticut and came back along another wooded trail. Lots of rocks and ups and downs, so I got my exercise today.

If you have an iphone or android phone, you can use the All Trails app, free version.  For free you can find trails or mark you own trails, take photos along the route and share with friends. With the pro  you can plan trips or print out maps. What I like is the fact that I can see where we are going, and how far I hiked. And, if I take a wrong trail, I can find my way back. All of the information is stored on their website, so you can go over the information on your home computer, as well.

Another great reason to have a camera phone..... sometimes we forget to put the battery back in our camera;) Luckily I also had my pocket camera in the pack, so I used that for these photos. The hike was a lot of hills and easy climbs and a few brook crossings, tempted to go back and try another trail tomorrow.

It will NEVER cease to amaze me just how easily and quickly you can get to the neighboring state in New England *s*
From here it takes about two hours to get to the next state, but then another three to actually get to a place you would want to be when you arrive. We can get to our neighboring country in under an hour though *s*
