The Pilgrimage

Well, It fits: so I headed out to Fort Hunter and then on to Canajoharie. Here's a neat church in Fultonville: Here's the trail. It's an old railroad with a crushed gravel surface: you parallel the Mohawk: and ride through some Amish areas: I decided to turn around in Sprakers: and then headed over to the National Shrine of Blessed Kateri Tekakwitha: Kateri was a Mohawk native American who converted to Catholicism and was beatified by Pope benedict XVI. The shrine itself dates from the 1780's and is worth a visit. I guess the next time I'm out that way, I'll have to if I can make up the hill to the National Shrine of the North American Martyrs
