2/18/14 Glenburn Snowmobile Trails

Cold ( 8 degrees) and gray but little or no wind which is a big improvement over yesterday. We do, however, have another winter weather advisory for this afternoon and tonight with more snow on the way. We decided to try a get in a good one today because we don't know what we'll get tomorrow. Back to Glenburn and parked at the closed store. This time we crossed the road and headed east. We have done this trail in the past but it got confusing later in the hike. The trail is varied, crossing fields, going through different woods, and by and through marshy areas.

At one point there is a hill and when you reach the top there is a huge field and the winter world is spread out before you

After crossing this field I remembered crossing Pushaw Rd. and continuing on to the lake. Today we ended up in this little development where the streets all had 'Vista" in their names- Vista Way, Vista Lane, Vista Ridge- I thought I could see Pushaw Rd. but not an easy way to get to it. We decided to solve the puzzle another day and turned back - we still had to cut through someones yard to regain the trail.

On the way back we decided to explore a pretty side trail

But after about 15 minutes we came to a 'No trespassing" sign and turned back again.

Heading back

In the field near Hudson Rd. there were a Milkweeds.

Turned out to be a pretty good hike in spite of the gray skies- it had warmed to about 20 by the end of the hike.  No snowmobilers but there were two men working in the woods that Kelley ran over to - she got some attention and I found out they were cutting trees into lumber to build a garage. The footing on the trails was really good  but off the trail was fairly deep snow- enough so that after a few forays Kelley stayed on the trails. 2  1/2 hours
