1/20/17 Demeritt Forest

32 degrees and cloudy but no wind. We got a little new snow yesterday which covered up the ice but in some spots making it slipperier. First thought was Perch Pond but at two trailheads we could not get into the parking areas because of snow left by the plows.  Next try was Demeritt which did have the parking area graded.

Starting on Logan Rd.the footing was not bad.

No water for Kelley - the little stream was frozen

Waiting while I take a picture

Sewall Rd.

We turned onto the Blue trail at this point to complete our circuit.

Blue Trail- the woods parts of the hike were a bit trickier because the trees reduced the amount of snow in spots and it was icier -but overall not bad

Not bad. Kelley did well but did not like the  icy patches and worked around some of them. When we got back to the car she was ready to stop and we did not go across the road to the river as we usually do. 1 1/4 hours 


  1. It's a black and white world this time of year, isn't it?
    I'm glad you got some snow. I wish we'd have something besides freezing rain and drizzle. It's a nightmare--no walks, nothing.
    This is the winter that .......wasn't.
    Hope you have a good weekend.

    1. Hi Sue- gray and dreary yesterday but at least not raining. We skipped days before the snow because of rain. We had that kind of winter last year and this one's shaping up that way. Forecast for next week is all highs above freezing.

  2. It's so nice to see her enjoying the snow and being so patient as you take pictures! Sometimes, I wish I had a dog's perception of dangers such as ice--I might enjoy winter more!

    1. Hi Betty - she likes the snow and is a patient girl. This has been a bad winter for ice and neither of us likes it.
