Looks like a lot of rain in the upcoming forecast for the week, so I took the opportunity to get out to do some hiking after work while we had a decent day. I drove east to the Pittsfield State Forest just over the state line in Massachusetts. There are many trails here, but I decided to do a hike of the main paved road through the forest. It climbs steadily to the top of Berry Hill and then descends back to the forest entrance for a total of 5.5 miles.

A long 12 hour day at work, followed by a dreary, cloudy afternoon left me ready for a nap. Clearing skies and a sunny evening was enough to prompt me to go for a short walk at the nearby Schodack Town Park, however.
A very short but nice evening walk. Seems as if spring is really starting to take hold.

Went for a small get away with Heather and Sasha the little pup to Vermont for a couple of days. I convinced Heather to go for a short, but steep hike up to a lookout spot on the nearby Appalachian Trail. The trail head was located about ten minutes away from the hotel at a parking area along Route 103 in East Clarendon.
