Pack Forest on a Sheet of Ice

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.

Next week: We took a drive around the Adirondacks and got a bunch of shots of various lakes, rivers, and a waterfall.
