The following photos are my trip to the Chemung on an extremely frosty Monday morning. The Tracker got stuck at the Grove Street River Access site, because under the snow it was all thick ice.
We did eventually escape, but will have to park on the street and climb the levee next time.
Blogger won't allow me to edit the photos with text. They are in order of their appearance:
A view of the Chemung through trees and brush of Foster Island.
The access to Foster Island. The entire area around it, including the levee, is thick ice under a lovely blanket of powder snow. It would be perfect for cross country skiing, or even snow-shoeing.
The mouth of Hoffman Creek out to the river.
A sunny panorama taken from the top of the levee, right at the Access Site.
If I ever get a chance, I will incorporate the text with photos at a later date. If anyone has ever experienced this and knows how to correct it, please leave a comment.
For the record, it would seem the problem was related to my own returned notebook. Seems fine now. I notice a big variation in blogging from different computers. And don't get me started on the problems I face when using a MAC...
