9/27/17 City Forest

Kelley did not seem very interested in a hike so we just went to nearby City Forest.It was cloudy as we head across the meadow to the pond.

The trees are starting to change colors.

Still lots of chicory

The pond remains low

Cattails seemed to be exploding

Don't know these

There were a surprising number of bees about

Lagging behind on the Grouse Trail

Back at the pond

and another bee for me

The sun was coming out as we climbed back up the hill and the colors were nice

Kelley was not overly enthusiastic but we got in a pleasant hour. 


  1. Great reminder of our hike when I visited, I enjoyed the trails, thought Kelley was doing a bit better since you cut back on some of the drugs but perhaps the heat has gotten to her. Off to Sicily on Sat. for a week--will let me decide if I want to go back and spend more time in some of the areas.

    1. Thanks for commenting Tom. Trying every other day with Kelley - she did well on hike before this.the heat does not help but are back to seasonal temps. Have fun in Sicily

  2. oohh...nice fall colors! Can't wait to see it when they are in full swing.
