Central Park - Jun 26, 2022

Gary Lincoff Backyard Walk 6/26/2022 3 hr walk, ~30 people attending. Began at Gary Lincoff Way, and very slowly made our way to the Pool and Ravine and slightly into the North Woods for most of the walk. Ended at Irene’s (steps from Gary Lincoff Way) with delicious broccoli rabe and foraged mushroom lasagna and foraged berry tart and cake. Today and yesterday have been about 90 degrees; rain has been forecast several days this last week but seems to always bypass NYC. Conditions on the ground were dry!
