Headed out for an easy walk this morning at Hand Hollow Conservation Area in New Lebanon, owned and managed by the Columbia Land Conservancy. As I headed out, light snow squalls were passing through covering parts of the ground in a coating of white. Parked at the trailhead on Gale Hill Road(no other cars there when I arrived) and headed down towards Meizenger Pond on the blue trail. A short spur path brings you down to a kayak launch spot. A stiff, cold breeze blowing across the open water said today wouldn't be a good day to be out there!
