4/26/14 City Forest

Gray day with a forecast of rain through tomorrow. We went to the forest to get in a hike before it started. Just did the West Trail to the old rail bed and that to a side trail back to the West to complete our loop ( with a detour Kelley wanted, down to the beaver pond) . We met lots of people and dogs also getting in a hike before...  There was lots of water and Kelley got in almost every chance she could. Was hoping we would finally get some spring things but not until near the parking lot on the way back did we find wildflowers.

Some of what we saw

Early spring butterflies

Pretty good two hours. We didn't get rained on and Kelley liked the water and all the people and dogs 


  1. Cute butterflies - I had to look at them twice before I realized what they were.

    1. Hi Kim- odd that someone brought along hammer and nails to mount them

  2. Interesting butterflies! Kelley looks very happy to be in the water.

    1. Hi Linda- yes, there is water everywhere now and she gets into most of it,
