Cranberry Bog Trail

The sun came out for our wonderful walk in the Greenwood Conservancy. The colors of autumn are fading fast, but the beeches are still golden here in Harwick, NY.

We passed ponds, bogs and streams populated by beavers, river otters, blue herons, ospreys and eagles.

Our group ate lunch on this bridge, where we had a good view of the beaver dam, holding back the pond.

Near the end of our journey, we passed through this ethereal spruce forest – the end of a perfect hike.
