Fortin Park Ski/Snowshoe Hike – Tuesday, February 10, 2015

Report by Currie Marr – “Let it snow, Let it snow, Let it snow!” It did just that the day before the hike adding 6 inches of new snow to the existing 18” base. With an attitude of “Let’s have fun,” 21 participants turned out to snowshoe or ski. As a single group we broke trail from the parking lot around the first metal building and headed towards the Fortin house. At this point a subgroup chose the hill behind the house and everyone else followed a perimeter route marked by the Susquehanna River, Charlotte Creek, Pavilion and back to the parking lot. Along this route of particular interest was the fishing dock corner of the park where Charlotte Creek flows into the Susquehanna. On this wintery day the “No Swimming” sign amused us, but tempted no one. When finished we were warm on the outside and some were energized and warmed on the inside at the “Underground Eggplant”. It was a morning of fun!  Photographs by Scott and Doug Fielder.
