2/28/15 City Forest

Sunny and 22 degrees- a veritable heat wave. Wanted to avoid the snowmobile trails on a Saturday ( there would be lots of people out on such a fine day)  so we headed to the nearby forest, where we hadn't been in several days.

We started on the West Trail. Most of the traffic had been skiers but the footing beside the tracks was not too bad.

At the end of West I went down  to check the old rail bed ( Kelley didn't want to go through the deep snow) and found little traffic and deep snow

When I got back up to West we met some friends we often see there and then decided to return via Main and Loop Rds. They were the first people we had met but on the way back we met several people and a bunch of dogs. this pleased Kelley.

Main Rd. had been plowed so the walking was very easy

 and the sun and snow was very pretty

From Main we took the Loop Rd , also plowed ,

and then Main back to the parking lot. A very pleasant outing - comfortable temps, pretty woods , and friendly people with dogs. 1  3/4 hours


  1. Looks like MUCH easier walking with the ground showing.
    Glad you had such a nice outing.
    I'm "outta here" for a couple days--will catch up on Weds.
    Take care
