Hand Hollow(New Lebanon)

Went out for a late afternoon snowshoe hike at Hand Hollow Conservation Area, located in rural New Lebanon.  There are two entrances on each side of the 433 acre area.  Today I entered from the quiet Gale Hill Road trail head and parking area.  Trails are clearly marked and color coded.
 I hiked down through mixed woods and down to Meizenger Pond's snow covered waters.
 A birch tree along the trail.
 The blowing snow makes interesting patterns on the open pond.
 A panorama of Meizenger Pond.
 The sun looked nice, but did very little to warm things up.
 A snowy footbridge over Hand Hollow Brook.
 Days are getting noticeably longer, stretching daylight all the way to almost 6 o'clock now.
Snowshoe hiked about 2.5 miles RT on yet another cold winter day.
