Pictures are here.
We had a nice walk in the melting snow. It is a shame that this section of the trail veers away from the river for a while, making it feel more like a walk along the interstate than along the river, but there are points of interest and by the time it reaches the Troy-Menands (Rt 378) bridge the trail is back along the water's edge and further from the traffic.
When we got back to the parking lot in the fading light, I noticed that the floating ice was moving in strange ways due to the drainage water entering the river from the side just south of the lot. Here is an unintentionally rather antique-looking hand-held time-lapse video of the movements. I like it more than its technical merit deserves!
