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:

2011-01-31 Snowshoeing in Vischer Ferry Nature Preserve

I got a pair of snowshoes for Christmas. Luckily (or unluckily, depending on your view) we had lots of snow in January. Drove a few miles and tried them out at Vischer Ferry Nature Preserve.

One of the attractions at Vischer Ferry Nature Preserve is Forts Ferry. This is one of earliest settlements in the area (dating back to 1672). There was a tavern here during the revolution, and local accounts note that George Washington crossed the Mohawk here in 1783.
