Completed about 2 miles of easy but cold walking at Garnsey Park.
My next stop was at the Levine Preserve, located in the town of Providence in a very quiet area of Saratoga County. The 177 acre preserve, managed by Saratoga PLAN, is a hidden gem in a beautiful natural area just below the Adirondack blue line. Finding the preserve can be difficult without directions. Leaving Saratoga Springs, drive west on Route 29 for about 12 miles until you take County Route 16(Barkersville Road) north to Glenwild Road on the left and then another left onto Center Line Rd. A kiosk can be found in the woods along rural Center Line Road.
After completing my very serene walk through the gorgeous woods I headed north one more time to Queensbury.
My last stop for the day would be the Van Dusen Preserve located at the foot of the Luzerne Mountain Range. Take exit 19 on the Northway and follow Aviation Road west to its end and then follow West Mountain Road north for less than half a mile to the parking lot on the left.
As I arrived back home, I was treated to a gorgeous sunset over the Albany skyline from Route 4 in East Greenbush. Just a reminder that even on the coldest winter day's there is light at the end of the tunnel.
