Van Cortlandt under snow
A trail around the athletic fields was (mostly) clear; about half of it was still covered in slush or even ice. I couldn't head into the dirt woods like I planned at all, not without snowshoes. There was also a trail clear between the pool and the football field over to the east side and the Putnam Trail. You can see it here; that's the Putnam going over the bridge.
While the Putnam Trail wasn't cleared, quite a few people had walked on it. This just meant that instead of postholing, one could walk like one would on loose sand. Great ankle workout, not so good for speed.
Not a high mileage day, but quite pretty out.
P.S. Yes, still raising money for
