1/31/17 City Forest

17 degrees, sun, no wind. We haven't been here in awhile because last time the trails were very icy.

Today packed snow with a few icy patches and a little glaze - not bad

Only a few pictures today because there were more people and dogs to greet than usual - though it was cold I think the sun got people out. We walked most of the first half with a man and his friendly dog and had a nice chat. When we got to the end of West Trail I thought we would return via the old rail bed and a side trail. Kelly didn't want to go that way so we came back the way we had come.

She had passed this by on the way out ( icy bank)  but couldn't resist the second time. Not much water but she got wet and had a nice drink. She could not come straight out and had to work around.

In spite of the cold a nice hike on a pretty day. Kelley did well. 2 hours


  1. No wind!--that's always welcome. Looks like a pretty day out. Glad you had a nice hike.

    1. Thanks Sue, it was pretty. Yes,the wind can make a big difference
