Thirty-one ADKers hiked snowmobile paths of Hartwick State Forest on July 1. The weather was pleasant, the paths soft and wide, and the forest shady and mature. Interesting finds along the way included mushrooms, toads, birds, Purple Raspberry plants in full bloom, and Red Elderberry plants bearing fruit. Doug Fielder took the group picture on the Home Page, and the three pictures below: 1) The Path, 2) Roots of a Fallen Tree, and 3) an old specimen of the Shelf Fungus, Ganoderma tsugae. The host for this fungus is always Hemlock, Tsuga canadensis.
