It's been a long time since we were on the towpath. The jungle of poison ivy it had turned into kept us away.
But after we scrapped our Palisades hike this morning because wet slippery leaves and sheer drop-offs don't go well together, and after about seven washes and lots of house cleaning got done, the weather cleared up a little and we wanted to do at least something outdoors. So we went to check out the towpath. We figured if it was still really bad we could just walk in Johnson Park.
We were very happy to see that a lot of work has been done on the towpath. The path has been resurfaced and tons of vegetation cut back. I had to look hard to see poison ivy.
