10/27/14 City Forest

Gray, 40's, windy. and sprinkles. Good day for the nearby forest.

We did our usual route from Kittredge Rd. on the West Trail and old rail bed.

First stop the beaver pond

The marsh along the rail bed is looking very wintry

Another porcupine- Kelley listened to me and stopped before she reached it

Along the rail bed

From the rail bed we took a different side trail than usual to avoid some sections I knew would be very wet.

One last time in the beaver pond before we head up the hill

The last time we were here there was more color among these trees

A pretty good outing. Kelley was not showing any discomfort, there was lots of water and we met some people and two dogs - all good.  2 hours 


  1. Poor little wet porcupine! Nice photo, and wise Kelley to stay away.

  2. Very cool to see a porcupine! And Kelley looks very happy to be swimming.

  3. Hi Linda- we see them in that area fairly often but usually they move off into the brush. Kelley was happy- with all the rain we've had there was water everywhere
