Take a Break – Tuxedo, NY
Well today will go down as a first for me – my first time seeing a rattlesnake in the wild. We were hiking near Lake Skannatati in Harriman State Park looking at old mine shafts – and so was the snake. This guy crossed our path, and seemed in no rush to get away from us. Aren’t snakes supposed to be afraid of people? Glad we got ice cream first – maybe I should have gotten an extra one to offer to the snake.
Take a Break in Tuxedo NY is a roadside type of ice cream place with a pizza shop inside (that I did not visit). I had a grasshopper sundae. This a good place to stop for an ice cream fix. It was fast, and the workers are friendly.
