3/9/17 DeMeritt Forest

Thirty six degrees, cloudy, and windy. We had not hiked last couple of days because of rain. First try was Perch Pond but we could not get into the parking area at either of the two  trailhead we tried so we came here which is not far. Parking area here had been plowed but it  was very icy.

After the rain and above freezing temps, we were surprised had how much snow was left.

The small stream had running water but the sides were too steep and someone had thrown parts of a cleared tree near the top making it hard for Kelley to even try to get to it.

Waiting while I take the picture. I wanted her to go ahead and be walking the trail but this is what I got.

Water ! She finally found some she could get to but only enough to just get wet.

A section of the Red Trail

When we came to the intersection with the Green Trail, Kelley started down it and I thought we would add it but she soon changed her mind and we headed back.

Not a bad hike as the footing was mostly packed snow with a few icy patches. Kelley did very well and seemed gald to be in the woods. 1 1/2 hours


  1. It's a sure sign of spring when Kelley can go swimming again.

    1. Maybe- 8-12 " of snow forecast for tues. and 3-5 on wed. maybe they are wrong

  2. OMG I wish I'd get your snow. LOL

    1. I wish you would get instead of us. I'm ready for spring
