Thirty one and sunny but quite windy. Headed for this trail because the woods would protect us from the wind and there would be water for Kelley.
This turned out to be a challenging hike because there were many sections of ice and not always on the flat. I was glad to have had ice grippers in my pack.
But there was water for Kelley
and a couple of interesting stumps
The other challenges, lots of downed trees and brush and they had been working on the trail and didn't always leave off cleanly . Kelley had some large work arounds but she is good at them.
Part of the work involves new bog bridges. Kelley is wary of them, she was on this one but others she just walks beside.
A little more color
and one last dip
Not the hike we had envisioned but a nice challenge. Kelley did very well in spite of the work arounds and ice, which she didn't like either. I managed to not fall but had my eyes on my footing more than usually. We also had the place to ourselves - who else would be out here? 1 1/2 hours
