A Chilly, Windy Stroll in Assiniboine Forest

The temperature was -7C, it was quite windy and a few flakes of snow were falling when I headed out for a walk. I decided on Assiniboine Forest, thinking the wind wouldn’t be too bad in the trees.

It has been many, many years since I have walked here and back then it was just dirt trails. Now some of the trails are paved, some have wood chips and the original dirt trails are still there. I walked a bit on each today.

This is near the start of the trail and you can see the wide, paved trail.

I did that walk in about an hour and according to FitBit, I walked 1.8 miles (2.9 km). There were quite a few people and several dogs so I don’t know if the wildlife stayed away because of the wind or because of the people/dogs – or if there isn’t much wildlife in there now. I didn’t even see or hear any squirrels or Chickadees – both of which are usually everywhere.

I did get to pet a few of the dogs though – so that is always a plus. 🙂

I’ll be back and will hopefully do more of the trails next time.
