Tour de Roger’s Island Park

November 9th, 2020

Tony Krivitski

Just on the right, off  Route 197 as you cross the Hudson River into the Southern end of the town of Fort Edward, NY.

Fort Edward, NY. https://www.rogersisland.org/Rogers%20Island.htm.

Although closed for the season, I rode around in it today & took a few pictures with a very olde iPhone!  Next time, I’ll bring a real camera!  But don’t bring your metal detector!  They aren’t allowed on the grounds!  There’s a Visitors’ Center, albeit closed now for season.  Rode the dirt/course rock roadway on a Criterium, but a Mtn. Bike or “Off-Road” Hybrid would be better. . .

Right front plaque:    Little plaque @ top:

  It’s an historical site, and though I’ve been by it many times, I never explored the area.  It also happens that I know the sculptress from Porter Corners, NY, Alice Manzi.  

Go ask Alice!
