Gray, 40 degrees and neither of us was excited about hiking but decided we needed to do at least a short one.
Start- looking more wintry than fall-like
but the rain put a little water in the stream
Whats left of the color
After we did a short loop we went across the road to the Stillwater River
Real water for Kelley
looking for a way out -parts of the bank are steep for her
Looking south down the river
Going back there is a small cove I walk around
and Kelley swims across
The spot she usually gets out had lots of leaves and branches so she found a nicer spot.
Not bad for a 1 hour hike - I am thinking of trying shorter hikes every day rather than longer every other day. Kelley did well today. She doesn't really care if it's gray and dreary
