Awoke this morning to heavy rain with a day planned to visit the Mohawk trail. We decided this was the ideal opportunity to try out our wet weather gear, shower coats, walking boots and a plastic poncho each for good measure. We were a little surprised our hosts did not try and rearrange due to the weather, as they have shown a distinct dislike of walking when the sun is shining let alone when its wet. They did give us some strange looks as we left the house. 20 minutes into our trip it turns out that in true american fashion the Mohawk trail is in fact a car ride with the obligatory gift shop at the end and is not a nature walk as Nick and I thought (we must have looked like right plonkers!!).
