Not yet spring


Any relatively warm weekend in February is cause for celebration. I took a walk on a paved path last Friday after work and it felt so great to be outside that I decided to hike at McFarland Park on Saturday. The hiking trails out there are still mostly snow-covered; some sections are icy, and others are muddy. Not just a little mud, either – like, boot-sucking mud. So it is definitely NOT spring in central Iowa, but oh, what fun it is to imagine these trails surrounded by spring flowers and little green leaves!

    Glad to see folks are out enjoying the parks! The paved trail around McFarland Lake is now completely melted, but venture off that path and you’ll likely find lots of mud. We hope you come back once it truly is spring! – Story County Conservation
