Old time Adirondackers

I don't know how many folks subscribe to "The Conservationist," the publication of the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation, but the price of admission is well worth the expense, as there are always articles that are not only educational, but entertaining as well.
The latest issue features a profile of an Adirondack native that has made a lifetime of difference for all those who love these ancient mountains. And that man is Clarence Petty.
Click the picture to enlarge, and click the link to read how this 103 year old giant of a man made a huge difference for a worthy cause in his lifetime!

Thanks to the NYS DEC and The Conservationist..

  1. Haven't read that article yet, but I will.

    I got a kick out of the article on salt mining. Salt mining is pretty big in the Finger Lakes area. Interesting to think that in some of the places I tread there are people working 2300 feet below me.

    Love "The Conservationist".
