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:

2011-03-07 Hershey Hotel Trail

Early in March my wife and I visited the Hershey Hotel. There is an excellent walking trail around the perimeter. The trail is reserved for the use of Hotel Guests. While my wife was enjoying the Hershey Hotel Spa, I took the opportunity to walk off some chocolate based calories. It was a beautiful morning, the evening before there was a light snow. Years ago when we stayed at the Hotel we went horseback riding. I believe that the trail follows some of the old horse trails that looped around the hotel. Near the end of the trail you walk through the sports complex and cottages of the new construction.
