Hike at Fahnestock State Park

Leader: Georgette Weir
October 23, 2020

This was a rain-postponed 7.5-mile loop hike during peak foliage season, under gray skies, and with unseasonably warm (69-70) temperatures. We heard a few tree frogs, saw two small red efts scurrying for leaf cover, and enjoyed brief serenades of the song “Autumn Leaves” in the original French (crooner: Jean-Claude F.) and in English (by Jean McA. of Betty and The Baby Boomers). Six of us (Jean-Claude, Margaret D., Jean M., Jean McA. and Dave W), started out from the Hubbard Lodge parking area, and were joined mid-way by two more (JoAnn and Deiter S.).
A great day in the woods.
