Visited a local DEC wildlife area close to our home ... on a sunny Sunday afternoon. Loop trail around the marsh through the forest with some long bridges across portions of the marsh.

It was a nice relaxing afternoon hike around the marsh ... hiked maybe 2.5 miles all told. Quite different than the 10+ miles we had walked the day before in NYC.
