This week the ADK outing took us up near the town of Burlington for a walk to Basswood Pond.

We started on the yellow trail, walking on roads recently scarred by logging vehicles. This tree spirit rose up near the pathway.

At the yellow trail’s end, we took to the road and found the blue trail that led us to Basswood Pond. This view provided the setting for lunch.

Salo's Farm

Our last stop was Tom Salo’s farm, where a unique root cellar and new ponds have been installed.
