Hiking 2:31:57  6.76 mi (22:29 / mi) +940ft 19:52 / mi
Hike on the bike trails to the south of Reservoir Road. Trails were cleaner than normal thanks to yesterday's deluge from the thunderstorm. And the temperature was in the low 70s, so very nice conditions for a hike.
Met one other person, with her dog, a friendly dog.
Hiking 1:37:24  6.05 mi (16:06 / mi) +375ft 15:12 / mi
Hike with Colette along Goose Pond Road and back. Very nice, cool morning.
Walking 43:24  2.53 mi (17:09 / mi) +165ft 16:09 / mi
After-dinner walk with Colette out to the black cows and back. The late-afternoon thunderstorm dumped a ton of water, but the roads were clear when we got out. And the temperature had dropped a couple of degrees, making for very pleasant walking.
Hiking 2:10:15  6.0 mi (21:43 / mi) +690ft 19:35 / mi
An out-and-back hike on The Finger trail. Put a little effort into the hike for a change. I felt pretty good and the threat of a thunderstorm was good motivation, too. Saw no one on the trail.http://www.movescount.com/moves/move344769971
Hiking 2:00:07  5.9 mi (20:22 / mi) +1050ft 17:25 / mi
Hike with Colette starting from Richmond Road. First we crossed the road and picked up the Brother trail which took us to the Charcoal trail. A right there leads up to Olivia's Overlook, but we bore left instead. After peaking at the Yokun Ridge, we turned right and dropped down to Olivia's Overlook. The parking lot was full.
We crossed Richmond Road once more and followed the Burbank Trail until we could turn right and drop down to Baldhead Road, which we followed down to Monk's Pond. At that point I thought we should add a little more distance to get close to six miles total, so we did a short out-and-back to add a half mile. Back at the pond, we turned right to get back to the car.http://www.movescount.com/moves/move344646790
Walking 1:39:53  6.03 mi (16:34 / mi) +350ft 15:42 / mi
Walk with Colette out to Woods Pond and then a couple more out-and-backs as we headed home. We tried to beat the rain, and we were moderately successful, although it was raining lightly as we finished. Still quite nice as it was cool and no sun to be seen.
Walking 19:00  1.05 mi (18:06 / mi) +90ft 16:44 / mi
Walk with Colette on the condo grounds.
Hiking 1:25:57  4.01 mi (21:26 / mi) +665ft 18:32 / mi
Hike with Colette on the trails in Barbour Woods and Haystack Mountain in Norfolk, Connecticut.
Barbour was rather nice with lots of Hemlock trees and generally nice single-track trails. We exited Barbour Woods by crossing the North Dam and then climbed up Haystack on a wide dirt road to the summit, which had a beautiful stone look-out tower. The descent off Haystack was steep, rocky and sometimes rooty, but brought us back to Route 272 where we crossed the road into Barbour Woods. We then walked over the South Dam before heading back to our car on Lovers' Lane.http://www.movescount.com/moves/move344404965
