Short walk in the woods, WLWF, 26 Dec, 2019

I had the rare chance today to spend some time up at the Hamilton County Mosquito Preserve with my youngest daughter and my two brothers. After checking the cabin out and having a warm cup of soup and some hot chocolate for lunch, we hit one of the local trails for a little jaunt into the Wilcox Lake Wild Forest

After signing into the woods...

My daughter led the way for her Dad and uncles to follow.

I picked a short hike up the trail to a swampy area near a local lake. It wasn't that far of a walk as we couldn't spend too much time in the woods. The snow conditions were very easy to bare boot as there was very little snow.

Micro Spikes would have been useful in some spots, but snowshoes would have been overkill. Don't even think about skiing here yet.

Soon enough, we reached the marshy area. It was partially frozen and reminded us that even though we had some cold weather, things haven't fully locked up yet in southern Hamilton County.

After saying hi to the local chickadee population, we backtracked out of the woods and headed down the hill to the land of Wifi and cell service

Still, time spent with family in the woods is time well spent.

Thanks folks.

Nothing fancy here, just a walk in the woods.
