The whole family (Martin, Charlie, Loki and I) went up to Thacher Park one evening last week and hiked the Indian Ladder Trail. Martin had never been there, and the overlook has some beautiful views of the Albany area. The trail goes along the Helderberg Escarpment and was originally used by the Mohawk Indians. We packed some sandwiches and had a picnic dinner after Martin got home from work. It was a nice evening, though it flew by rather quickly.
