Report by Ruth Schaeffer – Our trip to Vroman’s nose in Middleburgh and the Old Stone Fort in Schoharie was well attended with 24 hikers. It was a beautiful day and the view from the top was just amazing. The fields below were so green even with our dry conditions. As we were admiring the valley below three vultures circled above us – just floating on their wings – checking all of us out. It was unusual to be so close to them! We enjoyed the history of Schoharie valley and the museum was very interesting. Some of us had not seen the 5 buildings that are now part of the fort complex. Weather was even cooperative with a very comfortable hiking day. Photographs by Doug and Scott Fielder.
