The Snow is Coming; the Snow is Coming :-)

Finally, we are getting some snow. And it's time to get out and start enjoying the Winter season.

Our book, 25 Cross Country Ski and Snowshoe Trails in the Lake George, NY Region is the definitive guide for getting out and enjoying Winter in our area.

Order it through us, in time for Christmas giving, at http://www.rogerfulton.com/ or ask for it at Red Fox Books in Glens Falls, at Borders in downtown Saratoga or at Trees in Bolton Landing.

Get out there and enjoy!!!

Winter Wonderland


Took this photo about 11 pm tonight as snow was gently falling on Glens Falls, NY. It's one of the reasons I stay here so long; just to get a taste of the beauty and crsipness of Winter.

But rest assured that when it really starts to get cold here in about 20 days, my truck and I will be headed south at a high rate of speed!

Best to all, North and South,

Tick warning!

We just spent several days in the field in Northern NY. Ticks were a serious concern. On one day I took 7 ticks off of my clothes, and one off of my body.
The deer tick, officially known as the Black Legged Tick is the one that causes Lyme Disease. You don't want that disease. It makes the H1N1 virus look like a weak contender.
So, if you will be in the field, hiking, biking, hunting or looking for mushrooms, check you and your companion for ticks that evening. Might even be fun after a couple of glasses of wine. :-)

Deer Hunting Season in NY

Yes, it's hunting season in New York once again. For our hiking and biking friends, yes you can share the woods with those who are after Bambi's deadbeat dad. Be sure to wear bright clothing at all times and stay on the trails whenever possible. If you think there may be hunters around, make your presence known by talking. The primary issue with hunters is not your presence, it is that your scent will scare off deer. But they have no more rights than you to be in the woods. But let common sense prevail on both parts.

I personally have NEVER heard of a hiker or biker being shot by a hunter. But still, try not to look like this guy on the right.

Thanks to Patsy Sweet for this "after season" photo from last year. If he can survive a season in the woods, you can survive a couple of hours out hiking.

Hudson River kayaking and foliage


We spent the afternoon on the Hudson River out of the Sherman Island Boat Launch. (It's in our Lake George kayaking book.)
While there we found Ken Burl of Corinth out enjoying the day and his Hornbeck boat. We had heard and read about the Hornbecks but Ken displayed his for us with a beautiful backdrop of fall foliage colors.
Thanks Ken.
