Oquaga Lake State Forest Hike April 8th, 2008

ADK Tuesday Hike April 8, 2008: Linda and Stef Seifried led this Finger-Lake-Trail trip that ended with lunch at Oquaga Lake State Park. Fourteen Club members participated on this sunny, warm (58 F) day in the area known as the “Arctic State Forest.” The green ruffle on the tree is a Leafy Lichen (foliose type) and flat lichens are often referred to as a “time-stains.” That nick-name indicates how slowly this composite organism (fungus + alga) grows. The diameter of this specimen reflects an age of many years. Photographs on this page by
