Today Mike and I hiked the Tyoga Historical Pathway  (1.4 miles) and we had fun putting berries in odd juxtaposition with various fungi on the path. I was excited to find my first Indian Pipe Plants. We saw bear scat and heard baby birds of prey, hawk or eagles, not sure which. Dragonflies darted about and of course mosquitoes! The trail was wet in places but very well maintained with many interpretive signs and tags identifying trees. This would be a great hike with children or grandchildren (age 8 and up).
