6/13/14 City Forest

Another rainy day. Yesterday it was almost constant but mostly quite light . We took a walk around the neighborhood and then I decided it was a good day for setting out plants so got in squash, melons, eggplant, and cucumbers. We took advantage of a dry spell and went to the forest- it didn't rain again until afternoon and I got in peppers ( in pots) and some tomatoes after our hike. Rest of the tomatoes tomorrow.

We did our usual loop from the parking lot with two trips to the beaver pond. There was lots of other water around, some people and a few dogs so Kelley was happy. It turned out to be a pleasant two hour walk. These are some things we saw.

This sign, at the start, has been there a long time.

 But this one was new.

We saw neither owls nor bears.

Later - Decided I needed to add a Kelley picture


  1. I'd be more concerned about the bears than the owls! :)

    1. Kelley already had an encounter with a bear there- can see here

      Only place I have seen a bear on the trail- never saw them on trails in the big parks out west.
