3/23/17 DeMeritt Forest

Seesaw weather continues with  mushy snow one day and frozen crust the next. Tried to hike yesterday but Kelley wouldn't get out of the car. Eleven degrees when we got up but we waited and it was up to 17 when we started our hike .

The trails were mostly firm but lumpy in sections from previous traffic in the softer snow- at least no ice.

It was a pretty day and you can see our route on the map so just some shots of the various trails and Kelley.

A low marshy area that is too wet much of the year

and a leaf

Turned out to be a nice hike. The trees protected us from the wind and the footing was good for Kelley, who did very well. We had the area to ourselves so it was a pretty and a peaceful walk in the woods. 1 1/2 hours


  1. Kelley girl got to do a little exploring and get some sniffing time

    1. Yes, sometimes she spends so much time sniffing we move very slowly

  2. I can almost feel the lovely quiet through your photos, John. What a wonderful place to spend time with Kelley.

    1. Thanks Betty - it was a good day in the woods
