3/1/16 DeMeritt Forest


Sunny but 22 degrees (28 degrees colder than yesterday when it was 50) and much windier.  Weird weather continues as tomorrow is forecast to be upper 40's and rain.

Kelley was reluctant to get in the car and I was not feeling up to par but tomorrow is not going to be good so we headed to the nearby forest, thinking it would, at least be easy walking.

We started from Sewall Rd. which didn't look bad.


First trail we got on was icy and we did a lot of working around the ice.


White Trail was worse, with water added to the mix of snow and ice. Kelley was not averse to the water - I was trying to keep my feet dry.


Back on the road - more ice. Kelley did pretty well, though I could tell she didn't like the ice and I decided we had got all the exercise we needed and we headed back.

  A little more ice


The trail conditions were disappointing and it was cold and windy but we got in an hour and a quarter. Kelley did well in spite of all the ice.
