Saturday found me back in the Hudson River Gorge, this time with Boy Scout Troop #61, sponsored by the Malone Catholic Parishes.  Eight of our Scouts, along with some of their Dads and siblings, joined me whitewater rafting again with ARO.  We've been talking about takiung this trip for a long time, and I'm so glad we finally made it happen.

As you can see, a good time was had by all (including our guide).  I'll post more photos when I get them.

UPDATE (5/28): As promised, a few more shots:

I did a bit of "scouting" today, too, as I went to check out the lean to on on Osgood Pond, along with sites on nearby Little Osgood and Church Ponds.  I'm hoping to take my nephew out camping with me some time this summer, and have been trying to find an appropriate spot.  As I walked 4-5 miles along the looping Red Dot Trail (named for the--well--red dots which mark it...although I think I followed at least as many yellow ones, and a few pink besides), I realzied that the Osgood Pond lean to was, in fact, the very first lean to in which I'd spent the night...and the only one, too, until last September...
