Winter Hiking--Urban style

With one of our daughters living on the East Coast, we're heading back there this holiday season.  It's just for a few days, and thanks to the big storm, it will be even fewer days.  sigh.  But we are looking foward to seeing an urban winter.  No, we didn't pack our hiking gear, but we did pack some warm clothes and some comfortable shoes, and maybe we'll stride off confidently into Central Park for a hike.  A walk.  I don't think you can hike in a city, can you?
On the other hand, walking in Manhattan is an e-ticket ride---always more to see than you can imagine or expect.  Which should be true of every hike. 
And when we get back to California, we're planning to do so nice hikes in the Sierra, on snowshoes.  And when we do, we'll post some notes, and some photos.
