As one of my last treks before leaving for the winter, we trekked up to the Red Hill Firetower in the Catskill Park. It's one of the towers on our ADK Firetower Challenge list. And, as you can tell from the photo, there were several inches of snow on the ground. Not enough to require the use of our snowshoes, but enough to explore multiple critter tracks and a great, pristine day in the woods. Life was VERY good that day. so get out and enjoy winter when you can. Not EVERY day is a Nor'easter.
