Six Mile Run in the Snow - 1/26/14

With several inches of snow still on the ground, we decided to check out the BLUE trail from the Canal Road parking at Six Mile Run Reservoir.

This is a good choice for snow – the trail was well traveled with bootprints, and ski and snowshoe tracks.

The trails are easily managed on ski/snowshoes and the field edges are a nice option when there’s snow.

We chucked both the snowshoes and the MICROspikes in the car because we weren't sure what we'd need.

Wells Mills County Park - 1/1/14

For detailed hike directions, maps, and photos, visit our recently updated Wells Mills page.

We always try to get out and hike on New Year's Day. It's a great way to start the new year – and a good way to shake off the end of the holiday "eating season".

And the, um, wine and cheese from…
