First hike of 2015

Canton is in the midst of a lake effect snow warning and I'd guess there were 6 or so fresh inches of soft, powdery snow as I walked the Kip Trail this afternoon. The Little River was not quite covered in ice along the main channel. Windy, but most of the wind broken by the trees so it was quite comfortable in the woods.
