3/21/14 Newman Hill

Night before last it snowed then rained most of yesterday ( Kelley spent the day at the nursing home) so we didn't know what kind of conditions we would find today. Decided on this hike because there are a variety of trails. As usual the route is approximate because these trail still confuse me.

The Taylor road  part that had been plowed was mostly just muddy. When we got to the unplowed  part the snow was soft and fairly deep and the crust wouldn't even support Kelley so we turned back. The ski trail was a little better but I still broke through fairly often making it a bit of a slog.  I decided to just give up on these trails and head for another spot. We ended up back on the road. We had  met a skier and his dog in the parking lot and  met them again on the road. Ebby and Kelley became friends and we chatted as they played.

Getting to know each other

Perhaps he has treats

or maybe I do

The hike part of this outing was disappointing but turned out to be a good day for Kelley and Ebby who seemed to enjoy the play time.
