Ooms Conservation Area(Chatham)

Got out for a short walk with Kalli at Ooms Conservation Area in Chatham on a warm(finally!) winter day. 
 It was nice to see some birds out enjoying several bird feeders near Sutherland Pond.
Sutherland Pond and the surrounding vegetation are lovely in any season.
 With temperatures in the mid 30's, there were plenty of other people out enjoying the fresh air.
 Trails through the open fields were mostly broken in and made for nice walking.
 The beautiful countryside makes for a very enjoyable and popular walk.
 A great view of the rolling hills of Columbia County to the east.
 A gazebo atop a hill on the winding trails provides fantastic views.
 Even though I've walked these trails many, many times, it is still one of my favorite places for a nice, easy stroll.
 There are several benches placed throughout the Conservation Area, that make for nice places to relax.
 Bright skies.
 Winterberry tree near the pond.
Although it was only in the 30's, the bright sun and lack of wind made it feel like a true spring day!  Walked about 2 miles RT.
