Rode the west half of the Glens Falls Feeder Canal Trail last Wednesday. The trail runs on the former towpath of the canal. For a little bit, the canal runs through the Finch-Pruyn paper plant, and I'm sure they didn't/don't want strangers walking or bicycling through their plant. For that portion, the trail is routed through city streets. At the eastern end of this ride, the towpath portion of the trail starts up again. You can see the western end of the gap where my route goes away from the canal.

Rode the Spring Run Trail in Saratoga Springs. A bit short at 2 miles, so I spent some time riding around Saratoga Springs to make it longer. :)

Went for a reasonably long ride with Heather on the tandem. Rode about 7 miles on the Rutland Trail. Getting in training for our ride on the Genesee Valley Greenway. It's not as rough as the Rutland, but we'll be riding it a much longer distance.

Went up through Parishville to Catharineville. It's a ghost town, with a bunch of cellar holes and a few falling-down buildings. Oh, and a LOT of stone walls surrounded by woods. Farmers only bothered to collect stones off cleared fields, so ... it must have been pretty tree-less at one point. But the soil up to Parishville is thin and underneath it is sand. Not good for crops; only good for pine trees.
