Fly Creek Road Hike – Tuesday, December 8, 2009

Twenty ADK members met at 122 Schoolhouse Road, Fly Creek, the home of Ted and Kay Kantorowski on December 8. Due to hunters STILL in the woods, it was decided to “road walk” a loop around Fly Creek, so beginning on Schoolhouse Road, following Route 26 toward the Cider Mill, and turning left onto Hoke Road and a BIG HILL we began. The temperature was about 40 degrees, and after a slight snow flurry an hour earlier, the skies cleared, became bright blue, and the sun came out. What a treat!!! We proceeded into the hamlet of “Cat Town”, a section of Oaksville, along Route 28. Crossing 28 at Bennett Motors, we then were on Bissell Road. After passing houses, we were excited to count 17 DEER crossing the road from the Oaks Creek. There was a red tailed hawk squawking at us, and according to Linda Pierce, there had been another one previously. A left at the big bridge brought us to Cemetary Road, and back into the four corners in Fly Creek. People who are interested may go to a web site of old post cards which give a nice history of some of the buildings in Fly Creek and Oaksville. FLY CREEK AREA YESTERYEAR. Soup was served, and the hostess thanks those who brought along snacks and sweets for all to enjoy!! Photographs 4, 5, 8, & 9 by Doug Fielder and the others by Currie Marr.
