12/23/14 City Forest

Another gray day - light snow supposed to turn to rain and then more rain for next two days. We headed for the forest while it was still snow.

Kelley was only able to get a drink at the corner of the beaver pond.

Then she walked out on the ice - something she never does - must have been very interesting smells.

The woods were still pretty but the snow won't last with temps in the 40's and 50's in the forecast

A branch in the shape of a Christmas tree

And Kelley did find water to get into.

And I found some weeds to photograph

A nice outing though we didn't meet anyone- which Kelley likes to do. The snow stopped about half way through but the rain didn't start until we were on our way home. The footing was good  1  3/4 hours 


  1. Love the Christmas tree shaped branch--how appropriate!

    Merry Christmas, John.

    1. Hi Sue- I thought that was serendipitous too. Merry Christmas to you.

  2. That Christmas tree shaped branch is cool. Merry Christmas to you and Kelley.

    1. Thank you Linda- Merry Christmas to you too.

  3. I love the Christmas tree shaped branch. I'd bring it home and frame it. Merry Christmas John.

    1. Thank you Kim, and Merry Christmas to you too.
