15 August 2007 SUNY Fredonia's woods near Portland
SUNY Fredonia has a large holding of woods used for education near Portland, New York. The university allows outsiders to come and hike the lands. A local geocacher was able to get permission for five hides to be placed on the land. I had wanted to hike and cache here, but kept missing the chance for the daylight-only area. This evening I arrived in time to spend a couple hours in the woods.
The woods are great for hiking with clearly marked trails. Near my second find was a pond with numerous great blue herons and ducks. Near this cache I found the leaves of five orchids.
It was an outstanding visit. I found two of the five caches assuring a return trip in the future.
