Choking the (Rubber) Chicken

No rain today and the weather's starting to get hot, but not too hot yet. Went to Harriman State Park in the evening for the Rubber Chicken geocache. Actually, I'd been there the previous evening but it was late and the rocks were slippery and dangerous so I left. With more time today and some information from the cache owner, it was a snap.

Practically all of the walk to the location follows the Stony Brook and Pine Meadow Brook. I'd been taking the lower Kakiat Trail next to the stream but this evening, I tried the upper Pine Meadow Trail and it was a sweet walk. This is a popular trail on the weekends and it appears that millions of footsteps have worn the path flat and smooth.

And now, the pictures...Collapse )
