12/29/11 University Forest

Rained all day yesterday and then turned cold so there was lots of ice, making most of the trails we use dicey. The wind chill was 12 so we wanted to also be out of the wind and headed for the university in Orono. Kelley was happy to be out after spending most of the past two days inside and did not appear to mind the cold or wind. We walked the trails for an hour and a quarter and I only took one picture as I had my gloved hands in my pockets trying to keep my fingers from being numb. On a positive note we had bright sunshine.


  1. Nice contrasts of texture, color and form.

  2. Hope you had your grippers on? Don't forget Kelley has 4-paw drive with studs. So she is all set on the icy trails.

  3. Hi penbayman I, stupidly, did not. I have them in my pack now.
