Comments
Comments: Only 42 degrees when I started, but was soon an absolutely beautiful day. The trails in the Bigelows are just fantastic, not much better way to spend a day. Spoke to the caretaker, who mentioned that the pond is overstocked and they are encouraging fishing, if anyone is interested. The trout were jumping all over the pond today
