2/20/13 City Forest
Mild with mixed sun and clouds. We got 0 .6" of rain last night so didn't know how the trails would be. The parking lot was muddy and slushy but the trails were not too bad- worse were the more open spots where the snow was deepest and the unnamed trail we took across to the rail bed which had had little use and none in last few days. The rail bed had snowmobile use a few days ago so it was the easiest to walk. It was not bad for Kelley because much of the crust supported her weight. We went a ways on the rail bed toward Forest Ave. but when we came to a large wet section turned back. We spent two hours on our walk and did not meet a single person- very unusual.
