A nice east breeze and some mallards greeted the Mohawk Valley Alpiners as we headed to Moss Island, a designated National Landmark.

Our first ooh and ahh was the new, spacious vault toilet, strategically placed at the beginning of the 35' climbing walls. Soft new growth on European Mountain Ash and shad blossoms said it was spring. Our group took its time exploring the many paths that meandered the rocky island. Some ventured deep into the chasm and ravines. There were many potholes large and small carved into the gneiss by the Mohawk River. We crossed the barge canal, getting a look at the massive lock walls.

Our hike continued west on the bike trail, past a nice waterfalls. Lunch was delicious at Piccolos.
