3/16/14 City Forest

"Mostly sunny. Highs in the lower 20's. West winds 15 to 20 mph with gusts up to 35 mph." This turned out to be an accurate forecast . We decided to try City Forest but when we got to the road going down to the parking lot we use we found it had not been plowed. That meant parking at the top and walking across the broad meadow that leads down to the beaver pond. The wind across here made me think of turning back it was so cold.

Down the back side of the hill

There had been a little use but the track was frozen so pretty lumpy walking. Kelley was mostly supported by the crust so it was OK for her.

Once we got on the West Trail and were out of the wind it was comfortable but the track was still rough 

At the end of West we found that the rail bed had had a skier but no walkers

The Main Rd. had also not been plowed and had only a lone ski track so we returned on the trail we had come in on.

Back by the beaver pond Kelley found some water

Going back up the hill to parking.

It was just as cold on the return trip. We had seen no one on our hike- unusual for a Sunday. It had been a challenging hike- more for me than Kelley, though she did pretty much stay close and on the trail. 2 hours
