2/12/16 City Forest

Minus two degrees when we got up - I stalled until it reached five and then we headed for the forest. I didn't take many pictures.

Start of the trail looked like the footing wouldn't be bad.

Though I knew the beaver pond would be frozen, Kelley insisted we go down to it anyway.

She spotted a man on skis and his dog coming down the hill from Kittredge Rd. and we had to wait so she could greet them. As she was doing that, she spotted two more people coming down the hill - the mans wife and son- and we had to wait for them too.

When we got back to West Trail the man went one direction and his wife and son ( on snow shoes)and their dog  went the direction we were going. Kelley decided to walk with them and did so the whole way up West.

They were a little ahead of me .

But I would see them as I rounded curves

Near the end of West, Kelley stopped and sat as they continued, and we headed back

This was more pleasant than anticipated - no wind, Kelley was energetic, and the woods were pretty. There had been enough trail use to make pretty good footing. 1  1/2 hours 


  1. I just got in from a ski and it's minus 4 degrees--which is quite doable IF there is no wind.
    Love how you let Kelley decide when/where to go. Sounds like she always picks good walks.
    Have a fine weekend, John

    1. Thanks Sue - very cold here too and a good weekend to you.
