Snowshoe at Aiken Wilderness with Dave Ratti, Jayne Della Ratta, Bob Whitney, and Ken from Hoosick Falls, NY. We met at 9 a.m.
and put on our snowshoes at the entrance to Woodford State Park. We
headed south along the west side of Adams Reservoir before heading east
cross country. We investigated beaver flows. Tracks of animals were
visible – coyotes, mice, squirrels and moose. We then headed south and
west as a blizzard began making visibility poor. Lunch was in a
protected area of fir trees with sandwiches provided by Dave and
Jayne. Our compass direction was then north on the east side of the
reservoir returning to our start point. Distance covered about three
and a miles in 3 and 1/2 hours.
