RamsHorn-Livingston Sanctuary
Catskill, Greene County
Hudson River Valley, New York State

From Scenic Hudson: "A swamp may not have the cachet of a mountain peak or thundering waterfall, but what it lacks in grandeur it more than makes up for in the diversity of wildlife it attracts. Plus, as RamsHorn-Livingston Sanctuary proves, swamps can be exceedingly beautiful. A hike through wildflower-filled lowlands, alongside rustling marsh grasses and over intriguing rock outcroppings in its upland forest will linger in your memory long after the boots have been unlaced.

"For a special treat, hop in a kayak or canoe. Paddling tree-shaded RamsHorn Creek, curvy as old-fashioned ribbon candy, brings you even closer to the creatures that call the sanctuary home. You'll may draw the attention of some three dozen varieties of dragonflies, whose gossamer wings exhaust the color spectrum. Great blue herons and waterfowl could launch skyward at your approach. Overhead, a bald eagle or two is likely to keep tabs on your progress. And you might spot a muskrat, beaver or river otter. In other words, while the creek may be an ideal place to "get away from it all," you'll hardly be alone."
