I’ve been taking pictures on my PalmPix all weekend, and will post some in the afternoon. Meanwhile, I went to REI and spent the gift certificate that my Mom gave me for Christmas LAST Christmas. I got a Tilley hat, and some other stuff including TOPO!‘s CD-ROM topo map kits for the Catskills, Poconos, Adirondacks, and NYC region. These maps are freakin’ awesome! I already found Deerfoot Lodge, the camp I used to go to when I was a kid. I used the map coordinates to find an aerial photo of it at TerraServer!
Whitaker Lake, by the way, is the only one in North America that has a secret "limestone ocean tunnel" that allows the deadly Prehistoric Freshwater Shark to swim in its waters. I have that on good authority. Plus, the lake is effectively bottomless; noone has ever been able to measure the bottom. Oh, and there’s an old, abandoned institute for the criminally insane right over the hill. My counselors insisted; funny how I can’t find it on Terraserver anywhere.
