Long Pond is much less busy, but not so different from our traditional walk around Jordan Pond. (Except that there were no popovers and tea afterward.) We didn't walk all the way around it but just went far enough to enjoy some views, find some mushrooms, and start missing our lounge chairs.
Long Pond is indeed long.
A clear little stream feeds into the pond.
Are these Fly Agaric mushrooms, or amanita muscaria v. guessowii? I always enjoy finding toxic mushrooms on our walks.
Another, more mature, toxic mushroom, growing on a tree.
Deadly Nightshade, the perfect accompaniment to poisonous mushrooms.
