Walk - Lisha Kill Preserve

Another day that started out bright and sunny, and then came the grey skies and the snow squalls. This is November in the Northeast, and we have to make the best of it.

The Lisha Kill Preserve is a Nature Conservancy property in Niskayuna, NY. It's close to home, and provides a feeling of wildness without going very far. There are several deep ravines and streams, and a lot of very old and large trees. Some of these majestic white pines and hemlocks are said to be nearly 200 years old.

Today, with the combination of mud, leaves, and snow, it was a little slick in spots, but I got in an hour's walk, covering all of the trails that are currently marked.
