Picture perfect Fall day for our “Poet’s Walk” outing in Red Hook.
Over hills and dales, through the woods and crossing streams, we enjoyed our time together as always and as we continue to keep healthy with fresh air and exercise!

4 for 4.4mi on Silvermine Trail, Harriman State Park
Our quartet of hikers had a great time on our sometimes challenging yet Moderately Rated hike on Saturday 10/6.
Misty at times adding an enchanting air to our walk, we referred to our compass and maps, traversed brooks and climbed ridges for a very gratifying Trail completion.
Kudos to all for great sportsmanship!

Today’s Sam’s Point Loop and Ice Caves Roads Hike was well worth the time it took to get into the busy parking area.
A beautiful day and always stunning views were our reward.

Today’s picture perfect weather made for a great Volksmarch Walk at Innisfree Gardens in Millbrook today.
With our Germania President Bill and his First Lady Sylvia our group enjoyed the guided portion of trail as lifelong Naturalist George Petty shared his knowledge of the Garden’s many plant species as well as the Beck’s vision of a “Cup Garden” design.
We continued on around the lake and found many lovely surprises at every turn both floral and fauna.
We hope more Members, Friends and Families will join us on Sunday 22 July for our next Walk at Sam’s Point where trail is moderate with berries for picking!
Details to follow on our Website so check back soon and save the date!

Our small group of Volksmarch Members attending today’s 4.43mi Walk had a most lovely time enjoying the comfortable temperatures and interesting Sculptures of Storm King Art Center.
Our leisurely stroll was filled with good conversation and fun stories as each installment offered it’s own interpretation.
A bit of wildlife viewing included Summer wildflowers, Canadian geese families and pair of young coyote pups found in the South Fields which the Center saw to their safety.
We look forward to our next walk in June with details to follow.
It couldn’t have been a nicer day as my Mom and Dad’s Jeep crossed the Mid Hudson Bridge on Earth Day 2018. I was so excited to start my first volksmarch with Germania, and help survey our newly adopted section of the Steinhouse trail.
I got to meet lots of new Germania friends and there was no shortage of puppy pats! Everyone was in great spirits, oh and there was of course lots of smelling to do..and treats. I finally I got to meet Silvia and Sandy. Us two Hunds are sure to become the best of pals. I can’t wait till the our next volksmarch!
