Sunday, Sam & I went hiking with elasmo, ellatoulouse, xenonhunter and Dan-dan, down at Robert Treman State Park. It's a lovely park, a long (4.5 mile round trip, uphill both ways) hike, and well worth it. I'm discovering the best part of hiking like that is that it combines three of my favorite things - water/the outdoors, friends & good company, and exercise (I don't really *like* exercise, but I like the feeling of losing weight, and the good-burn feeling afterwards).
In summer, I love Ithaca. I love its gorges. I love its farm stands. I love being able to drive to new and different craft festivals. It's a wonderful, vibrant place.
