Yesterday Kelley didn't want to get in the car so we just walked around the neighborhood and then took the day off. She slept in the drive and I sat nearby and read.
Upper 40's this morning, sun but clouding up with rain forecast. We headed for the forest to get in a hike before the rain.
We started from the end of Kittredge Rd. which we hadn't done in a long while because of the deep snow in the meadow and the frozen pond. Today the ice was out of the pond. We like this route because Kelley gets the pond at the start and the end of the hike.
and there was also lots of water along the trail
We took the West Trail which was mostly clear but still had sections of snow
but still some patches of ice in the water beside the trail
The side trail back to West was a mix of clear trail, water, and patches of snow but mostly not bad.
Into the pond on the way out.
Kelley seemed Ok today. She really liked all the water and being able to explore a bit off the trail because the snow was gone. We also met several people, including a woman who recognized us, and a couple of dogs - Kelley also liked the people and dogs. It was pretty gray by the end but it did not rain until late in the day. 1 3/4 hours
