New Pack

Reading Time: 8 minutes Another hike with my friend Tim, this one nearly 19 miles. We started from Cheningo Solon Pond (M21) and made our way to Cuyler Lincklaen Road (M22) and back. I had acquired a new backpack – an overnight style pack – and wanted to test it out. The start of the hike was damp and wet with a brief rain shower on the drive to the trailhead. Fog flowed through the trees in the early morning before burning off and leaving the air damp and humid. Clouds persisted most of the day with a few breaks of sun. The road walk from Stoney Brook Road to Cuyler Lincklean Road and back presented us with two interesting sights.

Foggy Fall

Reading Time: 7 minutes As September neared its end Fall arrived and the leaves began to change color. I planned out my next, and possibly last, hike of the season. Rain moved in overnight, but ended before dawn leaving the trail and roads wet. Fog hung low and quited the sounds around me. My hike took me along and across several small country roads, beginning and ending with a long road walk.
