4/17/16 Branch Lake

Feels like spring ! Sunny and 47 when we started 58 at the finish. A beautiful day. The trails were in good condition and our  route is marked above.

First water opportunity

Much of the lake shore is very rocky and keeps Kelley out of the water

But there are spots where she can get in

 Bog bridges in the "wet woods"

A small stream we crossed.

A good outing. Kelley did well and we met people and dogs which along with the water made her happy. 1  3/4 hour


  1. You got some beautiful shots today.

  2. Finally Spring temps huh?
    We have been in the 80s here in Louisville the last couple of days. Not liking it but I don't have a choice, lol

    1. Hi I complain about winter but I don't like it heat either - I would be happy with about 70 year round and 50's at night for sleep.
