A-Team hike at Hudson Crossing Park ~ Nov 6, 2019

Journal entry by Don McMahon

It was supposed to be a better day thanThursday, and I don’t know yet about Thursday, but I already think it will be a much better day! A chilly start had everyone dressed warm but the day became sunny and warm enough to make one feel overdressed. Up to the challenge were the 2 Donnas with Peter and Dana, Jack and Lenore, Gail, Bonnie, Becky, Jim, Ken, Jane, Tom and Don. Starting from the visitor’s center parking lot on Rt. 29, we walked north by the lock and on the high trail overlooking the Hudson Crossing Park and to the trail end at the canal dam. Then we returned via the lower trail along the Hudson so that we could view the rapids and walk out onto the pedestrian bridge. After having lunch at the lock on the canal we returned to the cars -  perhaps a 4 mile walk. No hunters in sight! A very pleasant day that we will remember a couple of months hence when looking out the window onto a much colder, blustry, wintry day.
