Snowshoeing - Woods Hollow Preserve

Today was a day when other things needed to get done, and since we'd skied yesterday, we decided to join a group of people that Holly sometimes snowshoes with in the winter, most of whom are also in her summer biking group.  We could get out for an hour in the morning, and leave the afternoon free to catch up on some things at home.

Woods Hollow is a small preserve just north of Ballston Spa, at the corner of Rowland Street and North Line Road.  There are some old carriage roads, a sledding hill, and several miles of trails to explore.  A lot of people walk here in the winter, and it isn't long after a snowfall that all the trails have been packed down pretty well.  The farther we got from the cars, the more pleasant the scenery and the walking, and the fewer other people we saw.  It was a pleasant morning for our first snowshoe outing of the season, and another way to relish the recent snowfall after a mostly green winter last year.
