6/3/15 City Forest

After three days of rain it has stopped - still gray and a bit cool - 44 degrees but we are out of the house.

We started from the end of Kittredge Rd. so Kelley would have the beaver pond at the beginning and end of the hike.

Blown dandelion

Kelley was excited to be out and with all the water


Lady's Slippers

Stream across the side trail

Another blown dandelion

I don't know this one

Wild Lupine

Bog along the rail bed after the intersection with West Trail

Bug love

Lichen and pine needles

One last time in the pond

It was good to be out and Kelley seemed to be in good shape. We also met several people and a neighbor and his dog Homer. 1  3/4 hours 


  1. A banner swimming day for Kelley! Love all the flowers, especially the ladyslippers.

    1. Thanks Linda- yes, a good day for Kelley

  2. Lots ot photograph this time of year. You have some beauties (as usual!!)
    Glad you could get a walk in. This week has been nothing but errands and I haven't even had time for the garden.
