12/19/15 Branch Lake

Thirty degrees, breezy, and mostly cloudy. Decided on the Brookside Trail for today.

First little stream

A stump covered with various mosses and lichens

 and another stream

Branch Lake

One of the places Kelley can get to the water -  much of the shore is either steep or very rocky

 and then an apple break

The sun trying to come out

 One of the same streams on the way out - she won't use that bridge

Pretty good hike. Mostly the woods moderated the wind. The bridges were icy on the way out but only wet on the way back. Kelley did well. 1  1/2 hours

    1. Thanks Kim - a good water day for Kelley

  2. Is the public boat ramp in that area John? And Merry Christmas to you and Kelley..

    1. No - there are no cars allowed past the parking lot - says there is a canoe landing but haven't seen it. Happy holidays to yo and yours.
