Nehantic State Forest

3.89 miles   2.1 mph

same kind of hike as the last one, as in moderate elevation changes; from maybe 150 feet to almost 500 feet and back. this was kind of a scruffy little state forest with a nice up and down loop and some decent views at the top and very well-marked trails. once again, i had originally planned to walk a figure-8 through here, but the ups and downs got to me and i walked about a mile less. still a good workout, though. i also added a bit more weight to shirley. she’s up to 20 pounds now.

okay this one was just plain weird. here i am, in the middle of the woods, and voila! a port-a-pottie. wha…? it was hard to see how they even got it in here, much less how they service it. it wasn’t bad inside, though. maybe a little spidery…

this was the high spot on the hike, almost 500 feet elevation. the sun came out just after i took this shot and it became a glorious day.

i don’t know exactly what this shrub is, but it’s sooo close to busting out into leaf! such a welcome sight after such a long winter.

any guesses?

and there were a couple of these signs posted. it’s 3-sided, all the same. i have no idea what it’s trying to tell me. i’m probably not the target audience.

i have posted this hike in the hikefinder.
