Spring has sprung

Joshua making a proto blaze at a street crossing.
Along the Old Croton Aqueduct section of the HT near Irvington, NY, on a day so gorgeous that the path was chock-a-block with people, our trail crew erected a few ski-blue proto markers at appropriate points.

The trail passes Columbia University Nevis research center. One of the buildings was built by the son of Alexander Hamilton. Another impressive sight on the walk is the Octagon House. This was built in the 1860s and currently is being restored by its owner. We were told about both these things by Ellen, a Friend of the Old Croton Aqueduct, who happened by.
