Report by Jendy Murphy and Paul Wehren. The hike at College Camp in Oneonta on Tuesday, October 18th drew twenty-four warmly dressed adventurers. The chill of the morning gave way to seasonably warm temperatures. A pale blue sky was adorned with a half-moon illuminated by the sun. We hiked up the red trail, past the “brontosaurus” tree, to the gas line that traverses the hill. The bench and picnic table positioned there invited us to enjoy the view of fall colors. Returning along the purple trail was quite easy as most of it is a well mown grassy path. According to people’s differing step counters, we covered somewhere between 2.5 and 3.1 miles.
