Twenties , mix of sun and clouds - mostly clouds. Since we had recently found good footing on another part of this trail we decided to do a section we had not done before. Starting from the same place.
At the start it was very open marsh land
but soon turned into the woods
and nice footing again on a groomed trail - packed frozen snow
A pond we passed
We crossed a road and were confronted with a fairly long stretch of very slick ice with hard banks on the sides. Kelley didn't like it either but we managed to pass safely.
A stream the trail crossed
We have to have at least one twig in the snow
Other than the section of ice this was good walking- nothing dramatic but pretty woods all to ourselves. Kelley was enthusiastic - she likes new trails and was ahead of me most of the way, 2 1/2 hours
