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
