12/30/14 City Forest

Eleven degrees when we got up. I stalled until it got to fourteen and Kelley"s restlessness got me out. We started from the parking lot and did our usual route from there except for a little detour to the beaver pond at Kelley's insistence. It was frozen as I expected.

The only water there was the stream that flows out of the pond and across the trail. Not deep enough to lie down in.

I didn't take any other pictures because I was not inclined to open my coat and take off my gloves . It was a pretty sunny day inspite of the cold and we met several people and a couple of dogs. Several of the little pools Kelley usually gets into had a skin of ice on them and she would test them and then back up. Never the less she seemed to enjoy being out and we managed to get an hour and three quarters exercise 


  1. That Kelley is one die-hard swimmer! :)

  2. Oh, those lovely blue skies lure one out and then----freeze you! Good thing Kelley knows what's best....a bit of exercise.
    Happy New Year!
    May it be filled with lots of adventures (and water for Kelley)

    1. Thank you Sue and Happy New Year to you too

  3. Dogs are so awesome to watch! I love the shots you shared, so pretty and bright. Sometimes, I miss the cold, but then the moment passes :) Happy New Year!

  4. Holy cow, 14 degrees, I'm staying inside in my PJs! Happy New Year!
