A walk, some disc golf, and trail maintenance - Another catch-up entry

I've been falling down again at keeping this up to date, so this will be a quick note to fill in the last couple of days.

On Monday, I joined a walk in Wolf Hollow, west of Schenectady, location of the Hoffmans Fault, and a ravine rich in history.  On a beautiful morning, about 40-50 people showed up to this event sponsored by the local League of Women Voters and the Mohawk-Hudson Land Conservancy.

In the afternoon, I headed over to Schenectady's Central Park for a round of disc golf.  I hadn't played in almost a month, and the winds were significant, so I didn't expect any miracles.  I almost got one, though, as my tee shot on 160-foot #9 bounced off the chains and fell to to the ground, robbing me of my first ever ace.  I finished with several birdies and a couple of double bogeys for a respectable 63 (+6), right on my average.

This morning (Tuesday), I joined friends from the Environmental Clearinghouse as we performed our annual maintenance and clearing of the cross-country ski trails in Featherstonhaugh State Forest, near Mariaville.  We cut back brush and moved a few larger fallen trees, and left the trails in better shape for the winter season.
