Saturday was another unusually warm January day in Central New York and we decided to take advantage of it.  Steven, Diane and I headed south to South Meadows Nature Area in Tully.  The nature trail was about 1.5 miles round trip — although it did include a fairly steep, but graduated incline from the lower field to the upper field.  Full trail details can be found on my Trails, Tails and Tents blog.  There wasn’t much to see here, at least this time of the year.  We were unable to locate the one geocache indicated on this trail (GCY88Y), but all three of us agreed that it may be missing.  There were many tree stands on the northern portion of the trail and signs of deer throughout the field.  A few pictures of the trail are posted below.

On the way to South Meadows, we picked up a quick cache and dash at the Tully Hose Company.

I love foundations of old stone houses, so we stopped at Heiberg Forest for a quick geocache opportunity for Steven and a photo opportunity for me.

On our way back to Syracuse we hit up a couple more geocaches that were along the way — assuming you don’t count the missed turn that brought us about 7 miles past our turn 🙂
