Christmas is closing in. The trails were almost magical this morning with the thin coating of ice on them. Everyone had a great walk today.

Nice clear, cold day today so bundle up and keep the walks short. Starting to feel like Christmas with the new snow on the ground!

The trails are icy so be careful walking around. At least we didn't get hit with the storm that was coming up from the states. Grand Forks was not so lucky from what I heard.

The trails are really mushy right now with the wet snow and rain mix. If it gets colder it could become very dangerous for walking on.

It was a nice snowy walk today for everyone. Not much wind which make s a huge difference. Remember the 11th and take time to be thankful.

Also, keep away from the quarry. It is not frozen over yet.

The City has cut back a lot of the trees which blocked the trails. The sink hole is getting deeper. I think it is an old grey water pit or outhouse hole. Stay away it is very dangerous to be around.

Saw a Bald Eagle this afternoon in the big Cottonwood tree. The trails are still a mess so be careful walking. We are in the queue for service but when that is going to happen is any ones guess.

Good to see the sun again today. The trails are going to be a mess for awhile both with trees and mud. Watch out, I found a few large trees caught in branches that are ready to come down any time along the Main trail.

It was so nice to see the sun again! Oh, I got a birdie on the 5th (golf course trail) hole. A nice way to finish off the golf season. But  .... Batten down the hatches though, a Colorado low is coming through on Thursday.

Well, the sun came out for a few seconds today! It is going to be nice over the next couple of days (I have a tee time booked already), and then back to it. Pick your route to avoid the major mud puddles in the middle of the park.

What can I say after all the rain we have had the last couple of days  except , 'bring towels'! The weather office is calling for sun the next couple of days and there are fresh wood chips put down along the tree line trail next to the big field.

The summer is slowly slipping away on us, (but what a great summer it was) Leaves are turning and the geese are getting into bigger flocks. Don't forget the heart worm pills today. The trails are good and muddy after the heavy rains we have had.

Boy is there ever a lot of smoke in the air today. Not overly hot which is a good thing. Still, bring lots of water with you. Start watching out for berry pickers. Everything is starting to ripen. I found some wild plums that are just about ready.

I think the City avoided most of the storm last night. The area around Gimili, however, sure looks bad though. There are a few trees knocked down along the trails. I've sent a note off to the Parks Dept. about it.

A Moody Manitoba morning today. After a nice rain everything is greening up. The pups were having a good play in the wet grass. The trails are in great shape. Not to muddy at all. Only one wet spot left in the middle of the park.

Happy Good Friday everyone. The trails are getting much better, The only really bad ones are on the inside, flowing out to the field south of the park and Players. Oh, Players is open now so watch out for errant golf balls along the 5th hole and the golf course trail. Wait, I haven't played yet so you are safe (from me at least)!

Well the trails are getting better but not for the faint of heart (or lack of towels). Stick to the Big Field. Still some melt puddles but not to bad. The trees are starting to bud up so there is hope.

The Big Field is drying quickly with the cool temps and wind, (I hope we don't get the storm that is hitting the states today). The trails however are another story! Bring towels, lots of towels. Oh, Farmers Rd. is still a real treat to drive on as well.

The snow is disappearing down the trails. That of course means it's time to break out the towels! It is a bit of a struggle walking in the soft snow. Also, while I'm thinking of it , Framers Road is a mess with all the truck traffic so be careful driving. Taking Mollard Road and around that way might be a better option.
