12/18/14 City Forest

Yesterday it rained all day and we just walked around the neighborhood in the rain. This morning we awoke to a couple of inches of new snow and snow falling. Kelley was very excited and anxious to get out in it. I had to do the drive first and then we headed for the forest. We started from the parking lot this time ( I knew the beaver pond would still be frozen) and the trails were very good- just enough snow to cover the ice and yet not make it a slog.

When we reached the intersection with the trail to the pond Kelley still wanted to go down there. As expected  it was frozen and she even walked out on the ice as if to check it- not a usual behavior.

But there were numerous pools of water along the trail which she took advantage of .

We met three of Kelley's friends , Cadie, Homer, and  Keturah  and this made her happy. Did not get pictures of Cadie and Homer.

Keturah had run ahead to greet us and now Kelley is headed for her mistress

No one had been on the old rail bed yet this morning

You can see from these cut trees how the wet snow was sticking to everything.

We took a side trail back to the West Trail and when we got to Main Kelley wanted to continue on the east Trail so we did for just a short ways. She manged another dip

A beautiful day in the woods. Good footing, lots of water for Kelley, and people with dogs.  2 hours
