Recently people have been joining me on my Sunday Walks in Downtown Albany. Typically, I walk in Albany when I'm scheduled as a tour guide on the USS Slater (DE Docent). A slide show and a map are detailed at this blog entry. The USS Slater is now open. I plan on walking in Albany on Monday, Memorial Day, May 27. You can contact me at:

2010-10-30 Zim Smith Trail, Ballston Spa

Recently the Zim Smith Trail Extension North to Ballston Spa opened.

My wife and I decided to park a car in Ballston Spa, then drive our 2nd one to Shenantaha Creek Park and walk to Ballston Spa (approximately 4 mile walk). We decided against a round trip of eight miles. The trip is fine, until High Street. This is a fairly heavy traveled street, with some portions without a sidewalk.

Ballston Spa is a pretty interesting place. It's the birthplace of Abner Doubleday, and the Paper Bag. A hundred and eight years ago it rivaled Saratoga Springs as a resort. It is also the home to two museums.
