10/3/15 City Forest

Cool and windy. We hadn't been here in awhile because all of Kelley's water spots had dried up. After our 5 1/2 inches of rain  a couple of days ago we were optimistic.

There is finally some color showing - heading down to the beaver pond.

Across the pond - seems to be up to it's usual level

and Kelley jumped right in

Wildflowers are still blooming

Ferns are browning

Two of the spots that had been dry last time we were here.

We followed our old route down the West Trail to the old rail bed and that back to a side trail to the West again.

More color along the rail bed - it seems most prominent in the wet areas.

The small stream across the side trail also had water again.

A nice hike. Kelley did well. 1  3/4 hours 


  1. Wonderful fall colors! Ours are going strong too.

    1. Thanks Linda- just getting started here- still lots of green

  2. The trees are starting to look beautiful. I love the first lake picture.

    1. Thanks Kim - my favorite season - has been slow in coming this year
