Daytrippin’ the Adirondacks:Wilton Wildlife Preserve

March 22, 2016

Today Daisy and I headed out to Wilton Wildlife Preserve and Park in … You guessed it…Wilton, New York. Hiking humor.  This was a day when we decided to have an “official” destination.  I pulled off the side of the road…which is not easy here in the Adirondacks because there is nowhere to pull over unless you want to run into a ditch or tumble off the side of a mountain…and randomly punched in “park” on Google maps on my Android.

This is where we landed…enjoy!

Daytrippin’ NYS: Saratoga Spa State Park

On this day trip, Daisy and I just took a short trip literally “down the road” to the Saratoga Spa State Park in Saratoga Springs, New York.  It was not such a great day for a day trip because the weather was unpredictable.  Undaunted, Daisy and I bundled up in our sweaters and winter jackets and headed off to the park.

The first place we went to was the “Warming Hut.”  For those of you that don’t know what that is, it is a place set up for people to come in out from the cold to “warm up.”  Yeah…I’m being sarcastic.  Anyway, Daisy and I went in there and tossed some wood on the fire, sat down, and grabbed lunch.  After talking to my dear friend from Florida for almost two hours in the warming hut, Daisy let me know in no uncertain terms that it was time to leave and go for a walk.

We left the hut and took the following pictures.  Enjoy!

Daytrippin’ New York State:Kayaderosseras Creek Habitat

On March 13, Daisy and I went for another daytrip.  We didn’t intend to end up at the Kayaderosseras Creek Habitat, but we did…Oh how beautiful! Even though I am a writer, words cannot describe the awesomeness of what we envisioned.  Have a look for yourself and enjoy the pictures.

The Problem with parking

As I was driving with my dog the other day on my day trip to Corinth, NY…although initially starting out I had no idea where I would end up…I was presented with a conundrum…nowhere to pull off and take pictures.  Considering I was driving up a mountain, I guess that falling off a cliff was not worth the picture.

 

Daytrippin’ New York State

DO IT AFRAID!!!

Daytrippin’ is the subject of my blog.  The blog shows an evolution of not only my attitudes and interests; it  shows my coming into my own as a part of the Generation X.   I suppose at this age I should be wiser than I was in my younger years…maybe I am in some respects, but I have not really changed all that much since I was a young girl growing up in the Adirondack Mountains of New York.  And that is the genesis of my departure from American politics and activism to a cross country journey towards self-realization.

The Lord’s Prayer

 

Our Divine Creator, who fashioned and resides in the Universal Consciousness, Thy name is revered.

Bestow upon us the divine flow of creativity, love, and oneness that we need for survival on this earthly realm.

May Thy will coalesce with mine, and restore my wholeness, as You and I are One.

Give us daily sustenance by blessing us with what we need to live an abundant life on this planet.

Forgive us our inability to stay connected to YOU, the IAM and Source of Life.

Bestow upon us the patience and tolerance that we need as we encounter others, on a daily basis, who are not connected to You, the Universal Source of Love.

May you give us the strength to realign with You, The Great Source of Divine Light, while we wait in joyful hope for humanity’s restoration to Universal Oneness.

Amen
