Nope we couldn't walk down this walkway. It is almost fully covered with ice. You can tell the river has gone down a little but the ice hasn't caught up with the waters edge. Nope we couldn't walk the trail that leads to the river. The river came up the creek to meet us instead.
We had to stay on the road that runs around the park as we did the day we went when there was snow on the ground. When it is like this, snowy and cold, there isn't any people out and about we usually have the park to ourselves. Sometimes I let Luna off the leash to run. Here she is letting us catch up withher. She loves these days of being free. They don't come along very often. Conditions have to be just right. No trains parked along the park edge to spook her. No deer out running around to entice her to run away. I figured the deer were tucked into their beds at this time of day on a snowy cold day. Most of all no people running around in cars. She isn't the least bit street smart. She could run right out in front of someone in a vehicle.
Oh the joy she shows on her face when she can run unimpeded. I wish you could see the big smile on her face as she runs past us. Up and down hills, into the creek for a drink. I should have taken a picture of her up close so you could see all the mud she collected. UGH... Luckily after she dried it fell off. I think she knows the routine becasue she didn't even ask to get off her leash today. There was no snow but there was a scary train parked by the park. A good time was had by all in spite of the cold or maybe because of the cold.
