Kakiat First-Season Snowstorm

Kakiat County Park
Rockland Co.,
New York

Hiking Trails:
Old Mill Trail: Blue blaze
Kakiat Trail: White blaze

This was the first snowfall in the season, and was very early. This was the day before Thanksgiving, and we got around 5 inches from this storm. I decided at the end of the day to do a quick loop in Kakiat Park around the Old Mill Trail. I arrived at Kakiat about half an hour to sunset, and started walking. It was a bit windy and the snow was very wet and heavy, and I saw lots of branches sagging. This gave me an uneasy feeling with the trees after I saw some large branches coming down, and I cut the walk short and just took the first part of the Old Mill Trail to the connector trail, back to the Kakiat Trail to the end.
