I hoped the construction crew wouldn't be around because I've been wanting to walk past their site (the big white area on the map) and up the road to do a big loop. Not only were they there, but they were actually on the trail, blocking my way to the very last portion of it. How rude! I wonder when this new neighborhood will finally be done.
The other end of the trail was also blocked. Well, not blocked off, but covered with ice. I kept going until the ice reached all the way across, and decided it wasn't worth the slip risk. I like my wrists and knees and tailbone too much.
It was still very pretty there, though! It's a place that's always nice, like the UW Arboretum.
It was weird to see so much of the water frozen. The main wetlands weren't, but these gigantic areas that have probably been filled with waters since the recent floods were.
