Ramblers, it was my first. Instead of being meticulously planned, this hike was subject to the whims of coin tossing to determine which ways we would go.
At lunch, we performed John Cage's 4'33" and Imaginary Landscape #4, albeit with slightly fewer radios than the score called for.
Near the end of the hike, we may have fudged a few coin tosses to get us out in time. We passed by the Van Skyke Castle and Ramapo Lake, which were really the only scenic highlights of the day.
The hike ended up being 12.9 miles.
