We just spent several days in the field in Northern NY. Ticks were a serious concern. On one day I took 7 ticks off of my clothes, and one off of my body.
The deer tick, officially known as the Black Legged Tick is the one that causes Lyme Disease. You don't want that disease. It makes the H1N1 virus look like a weak contender.
So, if you will be in the field, hiking, biking, hunting or looking for mushrooms, check you and your companion for ticks that evening. Might even be fun after a couple of glasses of wine. :-)

Historic Bridge, Hadley, NY
In researching our future Saratoga kayaking book, we ventured up the Hudson River to where the Sacandaga River and the Hudson River converge in Hadley, NY. We took our own modern photos of the historic bridge there. But Fran Williams of Corinth, NY turned us on to this 1880 picture of the same bridge, as it was at that time. Note the train going over the other bridge!
But all of you will have to wait for our modern day photo that will appear in our Saratoga Region canoeing/kayaking book due out in the Fall of 2010.
