A Beautifully Chilly Morning!

What a wonderful summer!
Rare have there been really hot days.
Today's cool morning is fantastic!


We made a first step on an hiker stile at Donker Farm Monday night.
The idea is to make it possible to have a hiker pass through the meadow where the sheep graze without the sheep being able to escape.
It is going to take more work, but we had a huge crew that managed to dig 4 holes simultaneously and set four posts, and that is a fantastic start!

ALSO, on Sunday, July 26th, the Trust will hold its Annual Meeting out at Donker Farm!

Mark your calendars!


If you can,
hike in from Cook's Pond, parking on either Olean Street or Tatnuck Garden...
hike in from Cascading Waters, parking on Olean Street...
hike in from Cascades Park, parking on Cataract Street...
hike in from Cascades East, parking on Olean and Cataract...
hike in from Boynton Park of Cascades West, parking on Silver Spring Road...
hike in from Southwick Pond, parking on Walbridge Road!

     "TWO IF BY SEA"

You could also canoe or kayak over, parking on Olean Street!

As this is part of the 4 Town Greenbelt, and if you are up to it, make the most of it!


Ted has taken a hiatus from the Appalachian Trail to atend a week long music festival, and when he returns next week he will hit the trail in Franconia Notch.
Happy jamming Ted!
