Pros: Scenic frozen lake
I had finished up my tasks on Friday earlier than expected. Considering it has been cold all week, I suspected that the lakes in Harriman were still frozen, and with the predicted warm weather over the weekend, I was afraid the lakes would no longer be frozen for my Sunday hike. I therefore decided to leave my office a bit early, for a very short Harriman hike. I was delighted to see the lakes frozen. and posted as safe by the rangers.
I parked at the Lake Skanatati parking area, and then walked accross the length of the lake. Upon reaching the far end, I took the Long Path back towards the parking area, and then for another short portion on the lake itself.
As this hike was spontaneous, I did not have my camera with me. These pictures were taken with my cell phone.
