Hiking Again at Jordan Pond

Posted by Francesca

Do you remember yesterday’s blog when I was reading on the plane going to Maine?  What was Sharkey doing?  Sleeping, of course.  You might wonder what I found so captivating.  Well, I was boning (ha-ha) up on facts about Acadia National Forest and I discovered some interesting things about Jordan Pond.  Take a look!

Oh my, Franny!  This hike around Jordan Pond has been especially rigorous today.  My feet need a cool down in this nice cold water.

You're right, Sharkey.  This water is really soothing on my doggy pads.

Say, Sharkey!  Did you know this pond, officially called a tarn, was formed by an ice sheet during the last glacial period? It sits between the Penobscot Mountain and the two mountains known as the Bubbles.

Jordan Pond covers 187 acres, with a maximum depth of 150 feet, and a shoreline of 3.6 miles.  That's a nice trek!  No wonder Martha likes hiking around it!

This is certainly very clear water and I am feeling really, really thirsty.

Now, that's what I call refreshing!

Sharkey, perhaps you and I should open a bottling plant.  Pure, delicious Maine water.  Or, has that been done already?

  • F & S no wonder you both keep your girlish figures that sure is a lot of hiking you do. Maine sure does look like a beautiful place.

    Well my morning didn't start off to well I got stuck under the covers. Mom got up and of course the Labs have to be the first down the steps then mom follows. Well she was preparing our breakfast when she heard me crying upstairs which is not at all like me. Mom came flying up the steps only to find me stuck under the darn covers. I couldn't figure how to get out I was sound asleep when she got up and didn't know which way was up. Mom rescued me and I gave her lots of kisses. What a wonderful breakfast we had, beef, string beans and kibble - YUMMY!!

    It's hump day then we have a long weekend I can't wait.

  • what a nice pond, oops I mean a tarn! looks like a nice peaceful walk...as for our day and night not so good...Kitty has hardly been eating for a week and the Vet doesn't know what's wrong,(her blood work seems ok but tomorrow they have the results for her Liver. She has a Temp and is very lethargic. So Kitty being feral wants out, she has been pretty good and allowed to be handled without any problem, giving meds and force feeding is so sad but she allows me..I'm so stressed over this cause I can't handle my pets being sick in any manner, I just pray a lot for her to be OK again.

  • Hello Ladies,
    That walk in Maine sure does look fun, but hot. The cool, clear, water looks the best. Water on my feet, o.k., but not near my ears. Dad has been working hard on remodeling the kitchen for Mom and it is almost completed. The countertops are next. I like the people in and out. Everyone has to give me loves. I love it. The noise not so much. We are due for a couple of cooler days. I will take what I can get. Off to nap time while Mom cleans. Oh, by the way, Kirby Bear, how is your Dad doing these days? Take care all.

    Love & licks,
    Basil

  • Francesca, you are a virtual fountain (heehee) of information about Jordan Pond! Instead of walking AROUND it with Martha, why don't you do our famous doggie paddle ACROSS it? (Maybe you could get Martha to put on a swim suit and go with you? Then again, humans are lame where swimming is concerned.) Have fun! Bye!

  • Hello ladies, Kirby here.
    I think we all have our favorite places to visit. I like the walk around the park at Pigeon Forge, TN. There’s always something new to see; ducks, geese, boys, girls, and, sometimes, other dogs. The path is lined with flags, one for each state, and I have to check each one out as we walk. It’s going to be another hot weekend for us. It’s into the 90’s again and will be near 100 by the weekend. Thanks for asking Basil; daddy’s colon is clean and he is cancer free for a year now.
    Catch you later, Kirby.

  • Nice to see you puttting that knowledge to use Francesca. Another segment for, "Ask the Frenchies." That water sure does look good but I bet you two didn't go too far out, it was already close to your little bellies.

    Did GK go hiking too or was it too hot for him with all that fur? Delia, I will keep good thoughts and prayers for Kitty and you that she will be A-OK. :smile:

  • Hi Girl Friends &G.K., This part of that trip to Maine sure looks like fun. Doesn't G.K. like to walk out there in the shallow shoreline water? I've never done it before, but maybe I will try someday. That weather sure does look super and warm. It was 57&53 here yesterday and it rained all day and was very windy. Supposed to get warmer the next few days. Hope everyone has a great day. Love, Dudley Do Right XOXOXO+ PS to Delia, Sure hope that kitty gets better real soon. Our prayers are with you & Kitty.
