12/16/14 Walden

Dreary weather continues, 31 degrees and snow showers and the next two days are to bring more rain and snow. Again, not wanting a long drive with uncertain conditions we went to nearby Walden.

The trails had pretty good footing with packed snow, little ice, and some water.

Stuff in the snow

Kelley seemed to enjoy the hike, though we met no one. She found water to get into and did a lot of sniffing.

This was a short hike with the loop taking only one hour 


  1. You have such beautiful places to hike and I always enjoy your "stuff in the snow" pics.
    We never have sun here from December through February. Though at times I wish it would shine, there is a beauty in that gloom as well.
    Have a good day

    1. Thanks Sue - we do live in a pretty area. The gray starts to get me down - we usually have more sun in winter here than where I grew up in Michigan

  2. You might be sick of the snow, but I'm loving your snowy pics.

    1. Thanks Linda- I don't mind snow- it's the gray rainy weather that's depressing

  3. Its been dreary and grey in Chicago too. I want some snow. :-)

  4. Hi Kim - rained all day today and still raining
