Siegel Kline Kill(Ghent)

Took a very peaceful, short, frosty, early morning walk at the 55 acre Siegel-Kline Kill Public Conservation Area, located at 1452 County Route 21 in the town of Ghent.
I arrived just a few minutes after sunrise, and the wide open fields at the preserve, which sit down in a bit of a bowl like valley, were still covered in a very light frost and mist.
Early morning frost and mist.  Sometimes the most beautiful thing you can do is take a very early morning walk.  It often times will give a unique and rewarding experience.
I followed the green trail through the damp grass down past the bird feeders on my way to the Kline Kill.
A short, blue trail leaves the green trail and very quickly arrives at the beautiful Kline Kill.
A light cloudy, mist hovered over the cool creek water/
Back up away from the creek and back on the green trail, which was wearing a very nice color of spring green.
As the green trail arrived back in the open fields, the early morning sun finally began to crest the surrounding hills.
Early May frost.  My car read 33 degrees as I arrived a little while before.
The sun quickly covered ground and the temperature increased accordingly, showing off recent spring growth on all of the trees and shrubs.
I looped up the hill on the red trail to the bench overlooking the entire property.  The morning sun really felt nice up here.
Completed the loop for about a 1.2 mile quiet, peaceful morning walk.
