Or anywhere else for that matter! What a weekend in the Catskills! Cold, crisp–and gorgeous. Yes, I went hiking again–and loved it. Out in the Balsam Lake area of the Catskills. There was a rumor that a mountain lion had just been spotted on the trail–that was my cue to hightail it out of there! Bears I can handle (sort of) but I feared more for Willy’s (my pup) well being–it may have been just a bobcat–but I was not taking any chances! This weekend we have the ever popular Sheep and Wool Festival in Rhinebeck and the Autumn Festival in Shokan, both really worth checking out. In a couple of weeks Woodstock’s most popular “holiday” Halloween will be upon us! If you have never had the pleasure of being in Woodstock on this evening–give it a try–you won’t regret it!
