There's nothing like taking in a sunny spring morning with a walk in the woods.

There's a babbling brook, mirror-like images on the pond and birds filling the air with their cacophonious calls. From Canada geese and cormorants to a variety of woodpeckers, it's a bird-watchers paradise.

The location is the 249-acre Camp Seton on Riversville Road in the Glenville neighborhood of Greenwich. I was fortunate enough to be there to attend a class at the camp and wanted to share some scenes of the property that's only open to registered members of the Boy Scouts of America.

Too bad 1/2 of it was sold to developer. Setting the standard for not honoring heartfelt donations. Montgomery Pientum same thing,as well as stealing of Calf Island from our children. Tenting next to the Merritt Parkway is not a real natural experience. Bungled water company land pruchase a few years ago failed to yield a far more real piece of Earth.
