Just a Little Hike

.... to get the day started out right.

I haven't been to Elmo since Spring, time for a return before the snow flies. I know it's not as exciting as the Skyline... but it is in the morning for us early birds who also don't do crowds. ;)

Lake Elmo Park Reserve - First parking lot to the left after you enter through the gate.

Goal: Make a figure-8 - Walk both the little lake (pond?) and the ski trail.

Miles: Roughly 5.5 Miles

Terrain: Grassy, hilly, muddy if wet

Pace: Steady, but not rocket-speed

For those interested in the Ely trip but haven't signed up yet, this would be a great chance to learn more about it while we are walkin'! I would like to recruit five more for the trip in January! http://www.meetup.com/outdoor-snowlovers/events/81454092/

$5.00 at the gate if you don't have a season sticker.

For those who actually click on links, here is the map: http://www.co.washington.mn.us/_asset/gsb6qc/PKP-LEPRsummermap.pdf

    Perfect. Yes, Perfect. When I woke up and looked outside, I thought it looked too cold and was secretly hoping everyone would have cancelled so I didn't have to get bundled up and trudge out there... but three of you stuck to it, so I had to go. So glad you didn't cancel and SO glad to have gotten such a great walk in first thing this morning -- just made the whole day great. The bonus was great conversations with three cool people. Thank you!!!
