Snowshoeing - Schenectady County Forest

At my house, all of Tuesday's ice has melted from the trees, but not so 1100' higher up in the hills west of here, near the county high point. It stays quite a bit cooler up there, so it gets more snow/ice than rain, and the frozen stuff hangs around longer.

A short drive took us to the Schenectady County Forest, where we snowshoed for about an hour.The snow was crusty and firm, with only a little fresh snow on top, so this made for very easy walking among the trees glistening in the sun.
