Rain in December! This is going to make things very interesting tomorrow for driving and walking the trails. Please be careful if you are out and about. Give yourself lots of room and watch out for what's behind you.

What a beautiful day for a walk. Not a trail report per say but Farmers Road is being excavated in the middle section and closed to traffic. You'll need to go through the industrial park to get to the North parking lot.

Great Moody Manitoba Morning (wonderful song) today. The overcast and the fog are perfect for a Halloween howl! The trail are not in bad shape. The Golf Course trail is muddy in the middle so careful walking. It is very greasy.

Ok, enough of the rain already! The trails are not that bad really. The wind has blown down a lot of the leaves and they are covering the mud over. Sure miss the sun though!

That was a quick dose of reality for things to come. The trails are very soggy and slippery. Watch your eyes on the trails. The tree limbs are hanging down with the heavy snow.

I think we are making up for the lack of rain this summer. The only really muddy trail is Hawthorne, the rest are not bad at all.

Holy smokes that was a storm and a half last night! I wish I had gotten some pictures of the light show. Walking around it didn't look like to many trees came down. As expected the trails have the usual muddy spots but are drying quickly.

And the the sun came out!

Falls a com'in! The leaves are changing and the geese are getting into bigger flocks. The trails are in great shape but we are to get rain tomorrow. Maybe it will help wash some of the smoke out of the air.

That is just way too hot to be out for a walk in the afternoon! Early morning or evening would be best for getting your walk in. If you do have to go out keep it short and bring lots of water.

With lack of rain this spring the main trails have dried up quickly. We had another bonfire near the clubhouse again. The City has been contacted. Also, somebody went joy riding down the ditch so it is all torn up.

The trails are for the most part under water so bring your rubber boots and lots of towels. We've had our first report of a tick being found at the park.

Well you blinked and missed spring! The trails are in rough shape from the sharp ice that melted. I got this second hand. Still haven't been back to the park since Sage hurt her knee. We are waiting till the ice is gone so she doesn't slip and injure herself.

Happy Easter everyone!

Well that wind was a real treat wasn't it! The trails are not in bad shape at. It's only blown in along the open area on the Golf Course trail. Keep the walks short, it is supposed to be cold all week. I took a picture of the Sun Dogs today.

Well .... that was short lived but a nice break. Now, back to the real world. Keep the walks short. All the trails are in fine winter shape. The City has placed a cone over the 'Well Head'. This is only short term until they can make something else.

According to the Weather Station it is to be getting warmer this weekend. There was a happy Squirrel sitting in a tree, watching the world go by on our walk today, (hard to make out). The trails are in very good winter walking shape.

I hope everybody had a great New Year even though it's been so very cold the last little while. The trails are in fine shape. I'm happy to see people collecting up the poop but can we take the time to place the bags into the nearest garbage can?
