Took a ride after work today down to Dutchess County to visit Ferncliff Forest in rural Rhineback and hike up to its fire tower.
Inside the tower.
After leaving Ferncliff Forest, I headed east on Route 199 over to Pine Plains to visit Thompson Pond Preserve. I've been intending to visit here since I had hiked Stissing Mountain a few months ago and driven right past Thompson Pond.
Total distance for the day was a bit over 4 miles.
