11/25/14 City Forest

Rained all day yesterday so we just walked around the neighborhood and got wet. The weird weather continues with temperatures of 55 when we started  to 62 when we finished and a  winter weather warning  for tomorrow with 8 to 12 inches of snow predicted.

We started from the end of Kittredge Rd. and walked down to the beaver pond - ice was gone and Kelley was happy. We then did our usual route.

An old wall just as you enter the woods

Some other things we saw

Kelley tried several of the small pools but she tested them first and found ice under the surface water ( which she does not like) and backed off. The stream across the side trail was running.

Black ice

After a final swim in the pond we head up the hill to our car.

A pretty good outing. We met several people and dogs which always pleases Kelley. 1  3/4 hours


  1. I just so enjoy how you take photos of not only the views, but the many interesting things you find along the way. Not many people are so perceptive of their surroundings. I always enjoy "joining" you two on your hikes!

    1. Thank you for your nice comment Sue - Kelley sometimes gets impatient if I stop to long

  2. I love your second to last photo of the ice. Good to see you and Kelley are getting out. I'm sure missing hiking right now.....

    1. Thanks Linda - we have to get out for Kelley, though it does me good too. Snowing hard right now so we shall see what happens tomorrow
