Ascent Trip Report

Karen rested at the bridge on the carriage trail and I hiked down to Jordan Pond and found the trail "Bubbles Divide Trail" and up to the Bubbles trail where I completed the North Bubble. I Had done the south with Sarah when she was a little girl so it was nice to recall being here years ago and loving this park. Then back to Jordan Pond, wet my shirt in the lake and up back to the historic rock arch bridge dated 1925 where Karen had waited for my 40 minuted up and down and back trip. Then we hiked out together on the west side of the pond on the carriage road where bikes were everywhere and one elder man wiped out in front of us and got a nasty cherry knee.

Another fine hike with tough views to beat anywhere.
