Sunny and 40's - a pretty day. Kelley was not enthusiastic about getting in the car so I decided on the nearby forest to see how it would go.
The beaver pond is near the start of our hike.
West Trail - still not looking very spring-like
Decided on some of the side trails we don't often do. They are not always clearly marked and we usually end up turned around. we started on the grouse trail but the rest of the route may not be entirely accurate.
There were several wet sections.
First wildflowers of the year - just a small patch but there they were.
Near the end
Worked out pretty well. Kelley did ok, once we got going. We met a few people and there was lots of water. 1 1/4 hour
