Warmer today after bitter cold yesterday. Difficult to pick a hike because there is still lots of ice around. We had not been here in awhile and it was up to 27 degrees by the time we got here with lots of sunshine and little wind.
The tote road had sections clear of snow, icy sections, and snow. Here is a nicer section.
The little stream Kelley likes was frozen.
We found snow and ice on the trail once we got into the woods. I didn't take any pictures of the treacherous sections because I was too busy watching my step.
Big disappointment for Kelley - the lake was also frozen.
Further along and still no water. You can see an ice fishing shanty far left.
Finally Kelley went out on the ice to check it out. Unusual because she does not like ice.
A pretty day and Kelley did well as we both picked our way along avoiding the icy patches. As usual we had the place to ourselves. 1 1/2 hours
