Palmer Pond A-Team Hike ~ May 17, 2018

Journal entry by Don McMahon

Mea Culpa It sometimes happens that I forget to do the absolute necessity of providing a journal description!

However my memory has failed and I simply cannot remember all the people that showed up for the Palmer Pond hike. There were about 10. We decided to do the loop clockwise, having gone in the reverse direction in the past. This gets you quickly to the scenic north shore tour - many spots to stop and contemplate the view and feel glad to be alive and able to enjoy it. And we did stop often as we worked our way around the pond. We made the short diversion at the western end to where the fishermen launch their boats, and Tom found an additional longer trail that led to a point on the west end of the pond to a shady spot where we had a leisurely lunch. Then, rather than simply return on the trail, we bushwhacked north to pick up the logging road we had used originally to get to the pond. When we returned to the cars after about 3 hours, the decision was un unanimous, we go to Stewart's ice cream, rather than Stewart's mountain! Good decision!
