Rondout Reservoir

Valerie Freer,Marge Gorton and I happened to look down after looking at Common Loons off the parking lot viewing area at the Sullivan/Ulster border on Rte 55. Every butterfly was nectaring on the goldenrod. What a pleasant surprise for the 18th of October. This is the first Milbert’s that we have seen in years.
