It was a beautiful warm November day, so we decided to go for a walk at the Manitou Point Nature Preserve. We took the delightful trail that clings to a steep embankment covered with moss and mountain laurel right next to the Hudson River.
We chose this walk in part to visit a geocache that had been placed near the trail. We had tried our hand at geocaching on our recent trip to the Grand Canyon, and found it to provide a great supplement to the more heavily trodden sights found in travel books. This was our first local cache. Casting about the house for an item to leave in the cache, I came across an old camera memory card that was too small to be of any use any longer, and hit upon the idea of filling it with a couple favorite audio tracks. (I chose Gerard Hoffnung's hilarious "Bricklayer Story", and Grappelli and Shearing playing "I'm Coming Virginia".) Voila, a new music file swapping network is born.
Hope to post some pics from the aforementioned Grand Canyon trip soon.
