Two-Headed Goat

But we came for one thing and one thing only: The promise of a two-headed goat. And some nice views from the parking lot I suppose:

My next long-distance trail to do – The Shenipsit – traverses those hills (Update: Shenipsit, completed!)

Actually, a visit to Riverview Farms is worth it, even without the two-headed goat. You can read all about the place on the CTMQ page here.

Keep your chins up, kid
