On this trip, we chose the carriage road to the top due to icy conditions on the trail. Fortunately we brought spikes and snowshoes so were prepared for varying terrain.
From Day Mountain, we elected to continue on to Jordan Pond, initially along the carriage roads and later on park roadways.
Jordan Pond, usually packed in the summer time, was deserted and we had the place to ourselves.
The total round trip hike was 7.6 miles, during which we saw four other people.

After spending the day hiking on ice, we found this to be very funny.
