1/26/14 City Forest

The weird weather continues. We woke to about 3 inches of new snow and a temperature of 22 degrees. By the time I cleaned the drive and we got to the forest the temperature had dropped to 9 degrees with some wind. Just under 12 now ( about 3 pm ) with a forecast low of  4 but a high tomorrow of  41 and snow. Very strange.

We started from the Kittredge Rd. parking lot and it was nice to find Main Rd. no longer icy but with a nice snow cover.


We only use a short piece of it to get to the West Trail which had good footing and new clean white snow.






We followed that to it's end and then got on the old rail bed. This was not as nice footing because there had not been as much use prior to this last snow and it was bumpier and not as well packed- still not too bad.

We took a trail different from or usual trail back to West. It had no recent use but was mostly even and firm. It was also pretty.






A nice hike in spite of the cold- the woods mostly protected us from the wind.  1 1/2 hours
