Lackawanna River American Mink – November 2019

This is a special episode. This is the first time I set out with a specific objective in mind (rather than just exploring or wandering) and I accomplished it!

The animal in the first image is, I’ve now learned more accurately, an American Mink (not a Fisher or Skink as I thought previously). It is in the weasel family and I can’t believe I found him.

Please enjoy this episode. I know I enjoyed recording it.

Edit: In the audio I misidentify this animal several times. I use mink, weasel, skink (which is a lizard) and fisher! Nearly in the same breath! Sorry about that. I had to get back and carefully look through the photos and compare them with what I’ve found online to figure out this was a mink after all.

Seelyville Dam – November 2019

On my way to the pub with a few friends I stopped by a nearby dam to shoot photos. I was surprised that just above the dam was a small marshy area filled with ducks, geese, beavers and birds. I managed to fire off just a few photos before the light faded.

There is one photo of Keenlake Campground’s adorable tunnel that I quickly stopped by to shoot as the sun was setting through it.

Yesterday’s catch. 15″ Brown Trout.

Kayaking to Bannerman’s Castle on the Hudson River – July 2018

Eliza and I paddled on the Hudson River to a long abandoned arsenal castle. It was a great day.

The rivers are up in our area due to so much rainfall. I was glad to see a few people taking advantage of it.

On a recent weekend trip Eliza and I ate BBQ on the Hudson. It was a gorgeous weekend in the Hudson River Valley area.
