12/5/13 Walden and Old Rail Bed

A cold gray morning with rain forecast. We went to nearby Walden to get a hike in before the rain. We parked at the end of Tamarack Trail and took the Loop Trail to the rail bed and walked that until we reached the spot where a small stream cuts across. Not wanting wet feet we turned back and on the way met a group of nice women also trying to get in a hike before the rain. Kelley of course ran ahead of me to greet them. We had a chat about trails and trail maps and continued on our way. When we came to the snowmobile trail we took that because Kelley always wants to. That lead us to an unnamed trail that took us back to the Loop Trail and on to the car.

 I only took one picture - an ice formation in a small pond.


We got two hours in without rain and it was , as always, just good to be out.

    1. To me too- I liked that it had leaves in the water below it, though they are hard to see

  4. It was good to meet you and Kelley yesterday. We admired that same "tree" in the ice, as well as tracks of deer, grouse, turkey, snowshoe hare, and possibly coyote. Happy hiking! Valerie

    1. Thank you for commenting, Valerie. It was nice to meet you too. I wondered if the canine type tracks were coyote. Email me and I will send the maps we talked about.
