3/7/14 Walden and City Forest

Beautiful sunny day - 24 degrees at the start and 34 when we finished. First time it's been above freezing in 12 days. After yesterdays somewhat arduous hike I decided we would have an easy one today. We started from the end of Tamarack Trail and found nicely packed snowy trails. Some of the sunny spots had a light glaze  but it was not a problem and we both were happy with the footing. We started toward the Loop Trail but Kelley wanted to take a side trail and I decided she could pick the route today since I didn't do such a great job yesterday. The trail she picked crossed the easement which has a snowmobile trail and she took us a short distance on that and then back to another trail that brought us back near where we had left the main trail. She took us on the Loop Trail to the rail bed and then to Main Road to Squirrel Trail and over to West Trail. When we came to the unnamed trail we take between West and the rail bed I decided we would take that- going forward would not get us back to our start. When we got to the rail bed, she took us to the south section of the Loop Trail and that back to the start. On this last section we met a neighbor and his dog Homer who is a friend of Kelley's and that made her happy.

Some pictures of the trails today.

A very nice hike on a beautiful day. Other than Paul and Homer we saw no one and it was peaceful. 2 hours
