1/26/15 City Forest

A little below zero when we got up but sunny- blizzard forecast for tomorrow. I stalled until it got up to 5 degrees and we went to the forest to get in a hike. We did the West Trail, Main and Loop Rd. loop. Kelley wanted to go down and check on the beaver pond and so we did. Not only was the pond still frozen but also the little stream that flows from the end of it.

The trails were a lot nicer today following the recent light snow-it filled in the holes and made them smoother.

We only met one man and his dog in the hour and a half we were there but it was more pleasant than expected. The woods were pretty and the trees  provided shelter from the wind.

When we got home I found some frost on the garage windows

Because of the blizzard we will just walk around the neighborhood tomorrow.


  1. Love those patterns on the frost.
    My front door has some frost on it that looks like giant ferns or feathers. It's gorgeous with the sun shining through it.
    Hope you don't get hit too hard with the snow.

    1. Thanks Sue - we have a bunch of snow and it's still coming down. We walked around the neighborhood and Kelley wanted to stay out so she is lying in the snow - 8 degrees

  2. Love your photos of the frosty garage windows! Stay safe and warm, and hope you weather the blizzard okay.

    1. Thank you Linda- it's still going full blast - Kelley has been very excited all morning.
