Tubing on the Esopus

This weekend, we escaped to the Catskills for a weekend of camping. One attraction that beckoned us to the cute little town of Phoenicia was tubing on the Esopus Creek with Town Tinker Tube. A water release from an upstream reservoir had been scheduled for this weekend, so we were hoping for a wild ride. Unfortunately, the water release was canceled, but we still had fun riding the rapids—especially since my only previous experience tubing was on the lazy Shenandoah River.

Today, we hiked a steep 8-mile round-trip hike to the summit of Mount Wittenberg, and typing this posting is about the only thing I can do right now without pain. So it's time to sleep off the weekend!
