The next destination on my Virtual Hike was Dannemora, New York.

As part of my Virtual Hike guidelines I can take ferries to cross rivers or lakes. If not, I would not be able to go some places as some bridges do not allow pedestrians, or I would have to go a long way out of the way to find a bridge. In this case I would have to go north almost to the Canadian border or south almost a hundred miles to cross the water below the lake.

 I finally made it to Dannemora, New York. I did not know when I chose the destination that Dannemora was prison town. It is the home of the Clinton Correctional Facility, which is a maximum security prison. It just happened to be on the way to the next destination.

I have been setting shorter distances between destinations for better motivation for my daily walking and so far it has been working. I have been walking more each day and have made good progress on my Virtual Hike. I am still a few stops behind on my posts.

Now that I am in New York my next stop will have a literary connection, and then I will head south down through the Hudson River Valley. I have some interesting stops planned along the way.
