1/23/14 City Forest

Another very cold morning so back to nearby City Forest. We waited until it got up to +1 and today we had sun and little wind so it felt more pleasant than yesterday. We took the West Trail to it's end ( good footing ) and then the old rail bed. It was a bit bumpy at the very start but then there were only animal tracks and we had a nice firm surface with a couple of inches of snow on top and then no tracks at all - nice walking . We walked to within sight of Forest Ave and then turned around and went back to Main Rd. and the the Loop Rd. We had met no one until we met Keturah and her person- we see them fairly frequently- and it made Kelley happy to see both of them.

The only picture from today as I was having trouble with the camera again.

When we got to the parking lot we met Pete and his dog  Cadie, a friend  Kelley  likes to rough house with. I didn't get any  picture today so using two from a previous hike- similar goings on today

So, a good day for Kelley - good walking , people, and dogs. And I enjoyed it too.  2 hours


  1. What kind of a camera do you use John?

    1. Hi Kim -in summer I mostly use a Pentax DSLR but in winter a Fugifilm X10 which is easier to keep under my coat.
