Third Walk on 3-Pond Trail

Thursday, April 19, 2012

Forecast for the next 6 days: rain. My sister and I wanted to take advantage of this last day of sunny weather, so after work, we headed back to 3-Pond Trail. Third time this week. The trail is so beautiful that we just fell in love with it. I feel that I'm getting fitter. On Sunday, we did the 5.5 km trail in 2.5 hrs. On Tuesday, we did it in 2 hrs. & 15 min. Today we did it in 2 hrs., with no conscious effort to increase speed.

Three-Pond is an easy trail, with exquisite scenery.

There's a picnic area overlooking a large pond about half way down the trail, where we like to rest and eat some fruit and nuts before continuing our trek.

This is a photo of the pond we see at the picnic area, taken from another angle.

    Wow!! Such a beautiful place! I am so glad you are getting out and sharing your hikes with us! Way to go on increasing the times! It really does feel awesome to be moving and feeling better! I have never found their forecasting to be particularly accurate. Here is hoping they are wrong about your six days. They kept forecasting big snowfalls for us all year and we got next to nothing lol.
