Today’s fresh snow beckoned me to go search for some wintry Christmas scenes, even if in miniature – and fleetingly temporary.
I first visited Dwaas Kill Nature Preserve in the Town of Clifton Park. After strolling along the Long Kill Loop (orange trail), I wandered along the green spur trail and found this view of the Dwaas Kill.

Alas, the snow was quickly disappearing from sight! But, I did get these few glimpses before the forest floor returned to its late autumn carpet of a myriad of brown hues.
Merry Christmas to all and to all a good “White Christmas” Eve!
