Wilkinson Trail - Saratoga Battlefield ~ Nov 20, 2015

Journal entry by Don McMahon



Lucky us! Friday turned out to be such a good day, sunny, warm, so almost everyone had to remove outer layers during the walk. I think the attendance count was 16 although I can only come up with 15 names! It is noteworthy that the Wilkinson trail has been changed from a clockwise to a counter clockwise loop, requiring the relabeling of all the historical markers. To augment our experience, Tom supplied a historic narrative at each marker first using an old map but was quickly supplied a new map so that the markers had the correct correspondence. And best of all, unlike the prior CC event, we did not seem to be in the middle of a war zone! If it ends up being the last good weather day of the year it was well spent!
