    Default Greeley Ponds On A Spring Like Day

    Greeley Ponds 3-11-2012

    Greeley Ponds Trail out and back
    Distance: 4.4 miles
    Elevation Gain: minimal
    Time: 3.5 hours

    Gary, Anna, John, and Bob


    This past weekend, my friend John and I were able to escape Southtown where we haven't seen
    any snow since Halloween, and meet up with two very good friends, Gary and Anna. We had previously
    settled on a relatively easy hike this time since they have been very busy as of late, and have not
    been able to get out and hike much this winter. Anna suggested Greeley Ponds, and since neither
    John or I had ever been there, it seemed like a good choice.




    From the outset, we could tell that snowshoes would not be needed as most of
    the trail was packed out well enough to just bare boot it. There was a little
    chill in the air when we began, but temperatures quickly rose to a spring like
    40 degrees as the morning progressed.




    Since John and I haven't really seen any snow the entire winter, it was so
    good to be back in New Hampshire enjoying the scenery and white stuff.




    That I believe is East Osceola. I was just up there last September 11th for
    Flags On The 48. That was our summit to proudly fly Old Glory!




    As we approached the second, larger pond, the view really opened up to show
    the surrounding mountains. Ah, it was good to be in New Hampshire, hiking again!




    It was so nice to look into the woods and see what appeared to be about
    18 inches of snow covering everything.






    Thanks to Gary and Anna for meeting up with us for a wonderful afternoon!


    A small set of photos can be found here.

    I never want to see a day
    That's over forty degrees
    I'd rather have it thirty,
    Twenty, ten, five and let it freeeeEEEEEEeeze!

    Nice report Bob. I like how the branches at the top of the second-to-last photograph look like a spider web.

    Glad you were able to get out.
