Report: The "bestie" and I went for a "walk" around Green Lake at Clarks Reservation - Jamesville NY...the stairs are interesting...the path is clearly marked with green paint...easy even for beginners or those out of shape (like we sortof are)...there is a really cool rock to sit on about halfway around the lake with a gorgeous view of the water...very peaceful and tranquil...there are a few trees that look like a fire place - thank you ground erosion - you have to see them to believe them... me and the bestie are going back again tomorrow to grab some pics...
