Pine Orchard Snowshoe

Hello All,

It's been awhile since I have posted a TR. I am going through a major life change. I quit my career of 30 years and went back to college. Now I am a poor, broke college student at the age of 53! School has kept me pretty busy and I haven't been able to enjoy the beautiful world all around me here in the Southern Adirondacks. But my class on Friday was cancelled and the sun was shining, so I decided to make the best of my good fortune and get outdoors.

The dogs and I enjoyed a great little trip to Pine Orchard from Dorr Rd. I've been there once before and then there was fresh snow and I had to break trail all the way. But, this time the snow was packed which made for a much easier trip. The woods were so quiet an peaceful. I only saw one small group of snowmobiles and they were very careful to slow down so I could get myself and the dogs off the trail.

Not the most exciting of trips, but satisfying nonetheless. A good time was had by all. Here are a few pics.

Looks like you caught a pretty day! It was a nice day yesterday to be in the big woods, or anywhere for that matter.

It is remarkable how much the snow depth increases from leaving the Valley of the Mohawk to just inside the blue line.

Beautiful! One of my "Happy Places". Glad you made it out. The dogs look happy.

Back to school at 53?!? That would kill me. Best of luck!
