Cold and windy but mostly sunny. We usually start from the other end (water most of the way) but today we started from the ball field end, just for a change .
Five minutes into the hike Kelley found water anyway
The first part of the trail is boggy and there was more snow on the bridges than anywhere
Little River- it really is little when you first reach it.
No more flowers or insects
Thought trail from this point stays close to the river or reservoirs, most of the bank is too difficult for Kelley to get in and out:; we hiked to a spot near the spillway where I knew she could get in for a good swim
We then returned the way we had come. We met no one until a couple near the end. Kelley was happy to see them and they gave her some attention as we chatted. They had recently moved to the area..
A pretty good hike 3 1/2 hours
