We decided to go to Pack Forest as it was an easy place to hike in the midst of very cold temperatures. Unfortunately, when we got there, the entire trail was a giant sheet of ice. We didn’t expect this and had brought one of the dogs with us. We also weren’t daunted by this and just took our time sliding along the paths. In the end, what would probably have been a less than 30 minute walk turned into something closer to two hours. We weren’t the only ones on the paths and on occasion, the sun came out.
The first clearing in the trees.
Reflections on the ice.
Clouds, sun, and ice.
That is some interesting ice.
Maybe next time we’ll hike that hill as well.
Bridge on the other side of the lake.
The clouds parting makes for interesting views.
These were everywhere. Not really sure what they are, but they looked really cool.

Some firewood in the shed.

This tree just stood out in the yard by the lake.

When the path wasn’t covered in ice, it looked like this.
Tilting the camera makes for fun images.
On the way back, lots of broken trees.
Trees without bark and reflections of the sky.
Next week: We took a drive around the Adirondacks and got a bunch of shots of various lakes, rivers, and a waterfall.
