What's the better view: Fall or winter at Goodenow Grove?

We have to admit, the views atop and around the big bridge at Goodenow Grove Nature Preserve are amazing in any season. But there's something special about fall and winter that truly sets it apart.

The bare branches catch the snow, transforming the area into a mesmerizing winter wonderland.
