SUNY Oneonta College Camp Hike – Tuesday, June 7, 2016

Report by Currie Marr – Twenty-two participants hiked a 3.5 mile, red-orange trail-loop, through the woodlands of College Camp. Along the way we stopped at a map-station and traced our route, fantasized that a deformed tree trunk was a prehistoric animal, and noted blooming wildflowers. Flowering “Indian Cucumber-Root,” pointed out by Aleda Koehn, was of particular interest because of its two-sets of whorled leaves (multiple leaves per stem-node). On a very pleasant weather day, this hike, slightly longer than usual, was invigorating.  Photographs are by Fred Johnson.
