Sam's Point Preserve and Minnewaska State Park Preserve, Ulster County, New York

I met Martin and Lisa at Sam’s Point Preserve at 10:00 a.m. Our cars were the first ones in the parking lot at the Conservation Center, though we were immediately followed by another car carrying a couple not with our group. This other couple had brought along snowshoes, which they strapped to their backpacks, and they began hiking a few minutes before us.

Peekamoose Mountain & Table Mountain, Ulster County, NY

This Jewish Outdoors Club hike in the Catskills was limited to 15 people, but 7 canceled, leaving 8 of us. I gave a lift to Jonathan from my neighborhood, and we detoured into Brooklyn to pick up two ladies.

Minnewaska State Park Preserve, Ulster County, New York

I joined the Jewish Outdoors Club for this trip to Ulster County, about 80 miles northwest of New York City. I drove through Manhattan picking up three other hikers on the way. We were told to arrive at the park at 10:00 a.m., and that we would begin hiking promptly at 10:30 a.m. We arrived right at 10:00 a.m., though the group ended up waiting on stragglers (as always happens, despite the threats to the contrary), and we didn’t begin hiking until around 10:40 a.m.
