Bozen Kill Falls in Christman Sanctuary

Owned by the Nature Conservancy since 1970, Christman Sanctuary is a beautiful site that offers an easy hike through a plantation of cedars, spruces, and pines.

Grafton Lakes Winterfest 2012

It has been a strange, snowless winter so far in the Capital District but this didn't stop the Grafton Lakes State Park and the Friends of Grafton from organizing their 27th annual Winter Festival last Saturday. A merciful deity delivered a few inches of snow that very morning but the bitter cold and unknown road conditions discouraged many from attending. Once again, kudos to the small dozen of adventurous people who jumped in the Long Pond, you guys made me ... Continue Reading
