Pine Lake Ski, Snowshoe & Hike - January 13, 2009

Tuesday, Jan. 13. A group of 22 hardy ADKers met at the Pine Lake Campus on a cold and partly sunny day. We had eleven skiers, seven snowshoers, and four walkers.

Hello fellow ADKers,

Here on Long Island we are getting excited about Spring Outing 2009- the Undiscovered Island Revisited. Everyone who attended last time in 2005 had a great time and we are hoping it's going to be even better this year.

We've got more outings and different activities. We've got Workshops on Friday night ( speakers are not finalized yet) Music, and dancing Saturday evening after the Banquet. We've got walks, hikes, paddles, bike rides, cultural events even outlet shopping if that's your thing.

First ADK Hike of the New Year - January 6, 2009

The first Susquehanna Chapter ADK hike of 2009 took place Tuesday, January 6th, in the lower Robert V. Riddell State Park. Eighteen participants walked familiar trails and a newly developed loop that went through a White Pine forest. Despite freezing temperatures initially, the morning was sunny and the exercise warmed us. What delighted everyone was the decorated vegetation along Schenevus Creek with lovely ice crystal jewels. Julie Smith and Carol Saggese have captured this beauty of nature in their photographs below.
