A last gasp of winter for HSAS hikers

In the “It’s the Journey, not the Destination” Department:  The Environmental Club hoped to bag a peak on Saturday, March 10.  Who would have guessed winter still existed an hour north of the relatively balmy and snow-free streets of NYC?  As our hikers started to work their way up Taurus Mountain from the village of Cold Spring, the snow kept getting deeper.  When reports of snow depths of up to 2 feet at the summit trickled down to our group from other hikers, it was agreed by all that there was no need to make it to the top that day.  Happy to have one last chance to make snow angels and a enjoy a few rounds of aiming snowballs through an abandoned barn silo hole, no one went home disappointed.
