What a difference a day makes. Yesterday snow and today bright and sunny. We set out for a short hike nearby to take advantage of the sunshine and picked Washington Valley Park. A nice little park with several different sections to hike, We chose the middle section by the reservoir and got off the blazed trail and climbed what I believed to be an artificial 'mountain' built from tailings from the rock quarry next to the park. Somewhere behind Irina in her picture from the 'mountain' top is flatland NJ where we live. Broke for the ritual coffee/tea and snacks and did a couple of miles in total. Kinda muddy out there today from all the melting snow. Nice day, nice hike.
