It had just snowed the day before about an inch from an Alberta Clipper system. The next morning I went on a very short hike on the way to work to enjoy the snow before it all melted (it was all gone later in the day.) I parked at the Dater's Mountain Park Trailhead, and took the Orange Trail up the mountain. After crossing the brook and the valley, I reached the view, which faces across the Stony Brook Valley into Harriman State Park. I then turned around and went back the sme route.
