Mid twenties but sunny and supposed to get to forty. Uncertain about trail conditions we chose something nearby.
Only a skier had preceded us.
The first little pond had thin ice. I broke some and Kelley barely got in - she didn't like the ice and I got a poor picture
Once we got off the ski trail there had been no one before us and the woods were pretty.
Back on the old rail bed - ski tracks
We took the short spur to Pine Pond but it was frozen around the shore too.
The more enclosed part of the old rail bed. Again, no traffic.
The beaver pond had covered part of the the trail and it was time to turn around
But Kelley got some water - I got another poor picture of her - I had screwed up others.
Maybe the last of the plants in snow - we hope so anyway.
This turned out well. The snow was light because of the cold overnight and made not bad walking. The woods were very pretty and we had them to ourselves. Kelley seemed happy 1 1/2 hours
