I went walking on the Koch Minnesota Trail in Rosemount on Sunday. Mom has heard about it from friends, so we decided to have a look for ourselves. It’s a pretty short trail, and it was a real wet mess. Since Bailie had a mommy and me day on Saturday for her new title, and Olivia got to go tracking Sunday morning, it was my turn for some mommy and me time.
March messiness is still in full swing! The huge parking lot mountain still has to melt. The park and trails will be wet for quite a while it looks like! It is a hilly trail, so there is a lot of water running down the hills too.
Some areas of the trail get a lot of sunshine and the snow is completely gone. It looks more like we took the photo last fall!
Being short means my belly takes on a lot of water from below. I get to be a real mess fast. Mom brought a towel along so she could clean me up a bit before I got back into the car to go home. The remaining snow is super wet too. Behind me are a couple of holding ponds or something. Since we never have been her before, we will have to come back for a look when everything melts.
Sunday was a really windy day which is a good thing because it helps dry up all the water on the trails. The wind also blows my long ears around a lot.
Because the Koch Minnesota Trail isn’t very long, and we walk fast, the whole walk was only a half hour. We saw quite a few people, and a few dogs out walking it. It is a place we will keep in mind for short walks, or if we need a walking place when we are in that area. It’s always fun to get out and find new places to explore!
