Christmas Hiking in Hudson Highlands Park

Two days ago, two friends and I went hiking in our usual area – the Breakneck Ridge area in Hudson Highlands park. Even though in the city the ground was dry, up in the mountains there was already a layer of snow on the ground.

While the low temperatures were terrible for our extremities, the snow revealed animal tracks that made hiking through the area even more fun. The tracks became extremely useful towards the end of our hike, when it got too dark to see trail markers but not too dark to track previous hikers’ footprints in the snow.

Anyways, enough talk, here are some pictures (and a panorama!).
