Walk - Mohawk River State Park

Formerly known as the "Schenectady Museum Preserve", this is an area that used to be great and convenient for cross-country skiing. Now, it's become so popular with walkers, and their dogs, that the only good skiing is immediately after a new snowfall. There are some steep ravines and narrow, twisting downhills that can be pretty interesting on a good day.

But today I was walking, since there is no snow yet, just lots and lots of thick oozy mud. I wandered all over the place and even explored some trails I'd never seen before. This place is much better after the ground freezes and is covered with about a foot of snow. I was out for a little over an hour, doing a long loop around the wooded part of the preserve.
