The border between winter in spring is very brown. Though even with few leaves and flowers, the landscape can still be beautiful.
Our lunch stop was in Scarsdale, which is a pretty town.
We walked through some of the residential neighborhoods where the homes have a variety of architectural styles.
However, the most impressive structure wasn't in Scarsdale but in Valhalla: the Kensico Dam.
In total, it was about 12 miles on a day when the temperature climbed from the low 30s in the morning to the mid 50s in the afternoon and stayed sunny, for the most part. A satisfying walk.
