Walk - Schenectady County Forest

Another warm day, and skiing has pretty much gone kaput, so Holly and I got out for a short walk in the Schenectady County Forest, 1,000 feet up in the hills of western Schenectady County. Usually, this area tends to get more snow than down in the city, but last week's nor'easter dumped most of its load much further to the east, and wasn't really elevation-dependent. We took snowshoes, but left them in the car, since there wasn't enough snow left here for either skis or snowshoes. The footing was a bit rough, with frost heaves and lots of running water, but it was still nice to get out on such a warm day, before the rains arrive later.
