Primrose Brook

Primrose Brook, Jockey Hollow (3/1/2009)

This is the Hike of the Week for 6/12/2003 as described on the NY-NJ Trail Conference website. This is also the first hike where we actually met a national celebrity! Can you identify him the third row? He was out for a hike on this cloudy Sunday afternoon, just before the arrival of a major snowstorm, with his son and his dog. Yes, that's Neil Cavuto of Fox News and Fox Business networks. He was such a gentleman, concerned about a stray dog who had joined them on their walk, taking the time to introduce us to his son. He told me he lives in nearby Mendham.
