1/2/13 Snowmobile Trail- Prentiss Woods

Very cold ( 8 degrees when we left the house) but brilliant sunshine and the snow is still beautiful. We were just going to walk around the neighborhood but then discovered the snowmobile trail had been in use. There is a utility easement behind my house with woods the other side of that. This has been used by snowmobilers  except for last winter when there was so little snow they didn't bother. It is nice for us because heading north this piece of trail connects with miles of trails in several directions and all we have to do is walk out the back door to access it.  There is a variety of scenery - not always the most  exciting- but enough to keep it interesting and there are some side trails deeper into the woods. The sleds pack the snow which makes for easy walking for both Kelley and me and she can be off leash- we rarely meet any of the machines. Today we took the trail going south which ends at a pleasant small park - Prentiss Woods- with trails and dense woods. Kelley was quite happy with this trail and tomorrow we will try going north to see what is open in that direction. We managed to get in about two hours of walking.
