Cold but sunny and no wind ,so a pretty day. My ankle seemed Ok but I wanted something close in case it turned out to be a problem.
The beaver pond was frozen and all Kelley got was a drink from the water that exits from the end of the pond.
Still lots of snow
Kelley was not very enthusiastic today and when I found there had been traffic on the side trail I thought I could get her some water at the small stream that flows across the trail
But before we reached the stream we found the trail had been blocked and a sign indicated it was closed for "habitat restoration" . A land trust is now managing this part of the forest and based on some of their other projects I am not pleased.
I decided to just head back and we did and met a man and his young energetic dog. Kelley was friendly but not especially interested in playing and we continued on.
Only an hour but at least some exercise. No problem with my ankle- I wore my old boots - have sent the others back. Kelley was on some new pain meds and I'm wondering if that's affecting her or she was just having an off day.
