3.6 miles – yellow trail?
Ward Pound Ridge Reservation
Michigan Road trailhead
Around freezing, sunny, some wind
Walking with S is very enjoyable. Talking non-stop eliminates all thoughts of weariness or cold. Some rocky passages in the trail. S carries a staff.
Occasionally I pause mentally for noticing. The woods are bright, although the leaves are down, forming a brown carpet.
Afterwards, a trip to Hilltop Hanover farmstand. Passing through Croton Reservoir system, the waters more visible than earlier in the summer. I realize that there seems to be more water because the leaves are down.
