3/30/16 Tanglewood

Sunny and 40's when we started and 50 when we finished - lovely day. Kelley was hesitant about getting in the car but we have several days of rain forecast and even snow so I wanted to get in a hike. She can lay around tomorrow.

No snow or ice

but there was water

Quite a bit on some sections

The trail crosses a small stream

When we reached the river we found the water was higher than usual and flowing strongly - Kelley likes calm water.

  and she was able to find some

We walked the River Trail until we came to a stream crossing that barred our way - usually we can get across here

We headed the other way on the trail

Parts of the river were much calmer

Once again we came to a place in the trail I didn't not want to cross - water deeper than tops of my  boots but Kelley got in.

One more river view before we turned back into the woods toward the parking area.

A nice hike - beautiful weather and, once again, we had the place to ourselves. Kelley did well once we got on the trail. 1  3/4 hours 


  1. Ha-we should all have someone giving us that little push to do something. She sure seemed to enjoy herself once she got out.
    We've got more snow on the way as well. Not happy about that, but that's all part of living up here, isn't it? We have to tell ourselves---COOL summers!! That makes it all worth it!

    1. Yes- cool summers and a glorious spring after a long winter. I also sometimes don't want to go hike but once there am always glad I went.

  2. Good to see that your snow is melted (I'm sure you're glad too!)

    1. We are glad- snow forecast for the weekend but can't be much
