I finally got on some dirt for the first time this season.

Conditions around Mt. Hope Pond and the quarry trails near White Measdow Lake in Rockaway, Twp. were much drier than I expected. Except for the usual muddy low areas (the rail trail behind Dwyer School was a mess and to be avoided) the trails had drained very well and the rocks were not at all slipperly.

Even the wild turkeys were out in force. I came upon a flock of about 10 behind Mt. Hope Pond.
