3/20/12 Little River Trail
Beautiful day - got up to mid 70s and bright sun. We wanted a trail we thought would be free of ice and it was except for a few tiny patches back in the woods that were not a problem. Mostly just lots of pine needles and old leaves to walk on.
We started at the water district office end for the first time. The reservoir was also losing it's ice.
Which meant Kelley quickly got a swim.
The spillway at the bottom of the second reservoir.
When we reached the ball field end we had our apple and headed back the way we had come. I had photographed this tree before in snow.
A leisurely swim after lunch
and a shower for me as I was still sitting on the ground next to the water.
This was a very pleasant hike on a beautiful day and Kelley seemed to enjoy it too - lots of running around, exploring, and swimming or, at least getting into the streams we crossed. Extra Kelley pics for penbayman.
3 3/4 hours
