Saturday was another unusually warm January day in Central New York and we decided to take advantage of it. Â Steven, Diane and I headed south to South Meadows Nature Area in Tully. Â 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. Â Full trail details can be found on my Trails, Tails and Tents blog. Â There wasn’t much to see here, at least this time of the year. Â We were unable to locate the one geocache indicated on this trail (GCY88Y), but all three of us agreed that it may be missing. Â There were many tree stands on the northern portion of the trail and signs of deer throughout the field. Â 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 🙂
