Winter Comes to the Catskills

November 29, 2018

WHAT’S GOING ON IN THE FOREST?
Winter seems to have come early to the Catskills this year. Took a walk up to Balsam Lake Mountain fire tower a couple of weeks ago and winter has definitely set in there. The tops of mountains seem to have anywhere from 1 to 1.5 feet of snow. How’s this winter going to be? Well, there are 2 answers I’ve heard to this question by two men much older than me. One is, “I know it won’t be easy” and the other is “I’ll tell you in May.”

 

May the forest be with you,
