An illustrated children’s book, displayed as a storyboard, exists on a trail overlooking Round Lake at Green Lakes State Park – it’s between the upper and lower campgrounds and runs parallel to the street.

It is incredibly special.  A magnificent way to engage children with art and writing in the fresh air while maintaining social distancing policies.

It is, like, finding a treasure without leaving the path.  How cool is that?

Art is alive and well in Central New York. Art will always find a home here – find its way to you.

If you feel motivated to investigate this, there is something similar at Clark Reservation, as well. Those storyboards are placed closer together.  They are in the open space between the playground and the museum. <3

This is what I’ve been doing lately – walking around Clark’s Reservation State Park in Jamesville, New York.  I found an app to track my hikes.  I think they sort of look like Brice Marden paintings.

The app is called Walkmeter.  It also lets me know elevation changes, pace and calories burned among other things.

I started hiking here last year with my friend Bobbi.  I always just followed her and subsequently, had no idea where I was.  Now that I’ve been exploring more on my own, I now know how all the trails are connected and how to get on the path to my favorite one (Pulpit Rock Trail).  You can tell which one it is because I loop it several times.  It has a steep rock climb at the end.  It’s very challenging and soooooo satisfying.  Clark’s is my new happy place.

Dad used to bring us here (Kathy and me) when we were little, so I feel that connection in every step I take. <3
