Willard Pond is
a 96-acre pond
that is part of a
 New Hampshire Audubon
wildlife sanctuary in Antrim.
It can be reached from
Route 123 in Hancock,
about 3 miles from the
Harris Center
for Conservation Education

Rick heads up Bald Mountain.

Rick takes a seat overlooking the pond
and takes a picture.

while Joy relaxes.

Joy, Rick, Cheryl. Part of the group heads directly for the peninsula below, and some of us detour
to the summit of Bald Mountain (2,037 feet) first.

Bald Mountain offers a view
of Mount Monadnock (3,165 feet)
to the southwest.

We also see signs
of hedgehogs, maybe a fisher cat,
a mouse,
and something
that got stopped
in its tracks by a bird.

From the peninsula, we cross
the frozen pond, with a view of Bald Mountain.

Rick and Lynne goof around on the ice.
