Catskills - North Lake Trails

Hey friends,

It was a beautiful day to take a drive to the Catskills.  We had a picnic lunch at North Lake then went hiking.  The trail was a bit more than I expected.  I was a little slow on the way back, but hubby helped me down some steep ledges.  I'm grateful he was patient with me as he does a lot of hiking in the Adirondacks, which I really can't do any longer.    

The views were pretty with the puffy clouds.

We continued onward to a few other trails ...

There were many woodland ferns.

Do you recognize the plant below?  It is Monotropa uniflora, also known as ghost plant or indian pipe.  They are waxy white and unlike most plants do not have chlorophyll and therefore are non-photosynthetic.

A few mushrooms could be found, but not a lot.

My feet were very happy when we arrived back to the registration station!  

Happy Labor Day weekend everyone!
We plan to have a cookout, rest and I want to do some crafting.
