We have had a long sting of gray days with rain or drizzle. Kelley was not interested in hiking so we just walked around the neighborhood and one brief walk downtown, I was getting worried about Kelley. This morning was still gray with possible rain but I needed to get some exercise and decided Kelley was coming too.
Start of the Tote Rd. from the parking lot - some sections had snow and some were clear.
but there was water for Kelley
When we got on the trail in the woods there were sections with a surprising amount of snow and other sections with little.
This stream had been frozen last time we were here.
The lake was still mostly frozen with some melting near the shore
Bog bridges in the wet woods- some of these Kelley will use and others she goes around
Another little stream
After a slow start Kelley did very well and I was happy she seemed back to her old self. A pretty good hike on a dreary day but peaceful as we met no one, though there had been a car in the lot when we arrived. 1 3/4 hours
