Thirty six degrees, sunny, and a couple of inches of new snow . No one had been out this morning so on the tote road it was not always easy to see the firmer spots, but the footing was still not bad.
Thought we would try the Brookside Trail but it had not had any recent use and was quite soft. We gave up on that idea and headed for the Lake Loop Trail. This had had some use and had much better footing. The woods were pretty with the fresh undisturbed snow and the sun.
No water for Kelley today
Pretty good hike with a bit of slogging at times but mostly not bad. Pretty and peaceful as we had it all to ourselves. 1 1/2 hours
