Dog-Related Notes
Dog-Related Notes: Bring water! Even though it's flowing, it is far apart and with the humidity, dogs need water.  
Bugs
Bugs: Do snakes count?? 6 total (5 garters and 1 black racer). Also a Blue Tailed Skink (endangered and rare). Oh, and skeeters too.

Comments
Comments: 6.4 round trip from CT341 Kent to Schagticoke Tent site to tighten up those miles and set myself up for vacation. Lots of Northbounders still coming through. I have 3 a ride to the outfitter in Kent on the way out.

Mt Algo is a wooded summit but going over the second hill and out to the tent site there are a few views and some great hiking.
