The Cascades are 350 acres of park and conservation lands along the borders of Worcester, Paxton, and Holden, Massachusetts.

Dusting of Snow & Clear Skies

It snowed most of yesterday and occasionally the squalls were quite impressive. Somehow it really didn't add up to much as accumulation, though a dusting is present, especially where it fell on the remaining snowpack.

Today will be a beautiful day to be outside, with it getting to 38 degrees, a light wind, and sun. Please enjoy the beautiful Sunday!

Hiking Conditions: It is pretty, but it hides what is underneath, and on ice it can serve as a slippery addition, so please be careful with the footing out there.

Ted's AT Trek continues, with Ted having to manage 20 degree temperatures overnight deep down south, and a couple of progress section maps of the AT are posted at:
