Ice Caves in June!

https://parks.ny.gov/parks/193/ I love a good NYS Park! This will be an early day so we can make sure we can enter - because of the features of this park, the lot fills early. Once we have a head count we will figure out a meeting place to carpool. Everyone in the car will pitch in to the driver for gas and tolls. We will do bring-your-own-lunch and have a picnic. Everyone can bring whatever food they like (there is no bbq-ing or cooking allowed on site) and (optional) a snack to share with the group. Depending on what the group wants to do, we can stop for dinner on the way home. Also, bring yourself plenty of water, a towel in case it is super hot, sunscreen, sunglasses and maybe some bug spray. Wear comfortable but sturdy sneakers/boots - I would not recommend sandals or flip flops. "Sam's Point contains a bounty of natural splendor. It is home to Lake Maratanza, one of the five Shawangunk sky lakes; ice cave crevices that you can explore; cliffs and numerous scenic vistas. Verkeerder Kill Falls, is a spectacular 187 foot high waterfall located on private property, please respect the use of private property and remain on the trail. In order to protect both the visitor experience, and the unique ecosystem, Sam's Point has a small parking facility. Visitors should plan to arrive early, or visit at non-peak times, in order to obtain entry. The vehicle use fee is $10 per car, payable by cash or credit card, and the Empire Pass is accepted. Please note the parking area fills early. There are no additional fees for public programs, unless otherwise noted."
