Sure, the view’s beautiful from underneath a soaring hang glider, but how much more stunning it is when you’re the one flying through the clear Catskill Mountain air!

Hang gliding in the ’Gunks:

Take off with your own set of wings BY DAN HUST

S

tanding atop the Shawangunk Ridge, the highest peaks of the Catskills directly ahead, you wonder: Can I really do this? Can I actually fly like a bird does? Greg Black knows the feeling. He experienced it 39 years ago, when he first rigged himself into a hang glider. A running start quickly launched him into the air, and those age-old questions were answered. Yes, I CAN! “It’s like what you dreamt about as a kid,” he 12 • CATSKILL-DELAWARE, SUMMER 2014

grins. “It’s complete freedom on a three-dimensional level,” agrees Josh McMillan. Greg owns Mountain Wings, a hang gliding shop and training school operating on the outskirts of Ellenville, NY since 1980. Josh is one of his U.S. Hang Gliding Association-certified instructors. They introduce about 1,000 people every year to the exhilarating sport. “Every time I land, it feels like I’ve cleansed my soul,” Josh relates. “Women pilots,” adds a still-grinning Greg, “call it an ‘airgasm’.” Your choice of words may be the same – or

stronger – when you first feel the ground drop out from under your feet. Videos and images on Mountain Wings’ website, www.mtnwings.com, show what it’s like: the wind whistling past your face, buildings and cars slowly shrinking far below, the green valleys giving way to the bluish mountains. The winds and topography combine to give this part of Catskill-Delaware country a great advantage in getting aloft with minimal effort. Indeed, just south of Mountain Wings’ location sits the Wurtsboro Airport, billed as the oldest soaring site in the U.S. (though being an airport, it’s geared more towards gliders and planes than hang gliders). If you’ve never even watched hang gliders soar effortlessly over the countryside, it’s time to take a trip to Ellenville. Pick a sunny day when the wind is out of the northwest. Climbing NYS Route 52 east out of Ellenville will take you up the side of the Shawangunk Ridge, passing just underneath Mountain Wings’ launch pad. Pulloffs along 52 provide

ample spots to catch the hang gliders in flight – and view the spectacular Catskills scenery. Back on the valley floor, taking U.S. Route 209 south of Ellenville will shortly bring you to CONTINUED ON PAGE 18

Instructors at Mountain Wings will ensure you have the proper training, clothing and equipment to fly safely, comfortably and memorably.

Hang Glider Road – where else? – and at its end you’ll find Mountain Wings itself. Here you can watch the hang gliders land, train to fly one yourself, or just hang out with about as laid-back a group of enthusiasts as you’ll ever find. “We’re open every day except Wednesday, April through December,” says Greg, whose shop is a place of wonder, filled with all things aviation-related, including an historic plane undergoing renovations. He’s just as happy showing you videos of his own trips aloft and recounting records set by local flyers: longest flight – 11 hours and 20 minutes; longest distance – 201 miles; highest height – 13,800 feet. Typically, hang gliders here slip along the air currents at about 1,000-7,000 feet up – high enough that if something were to go wrong, your parachute would gently float you back down to earth. But the vast majority of hang gliders experience flights free of anything but pure exhilaraCONTINUED ON PAGE 21

tion and contentment. “You’re not thinking about the bad day you had,” affirms Josh, who spends much of his time training those over 14 years of age and under 500 pounds to fly what is literally a 50pound set of wings. “They are twice as strong as a Cessna [airplane],” explains Greg, pointing to the Dacron fabric and tubular aluminum bracing. That lightweight but durable construction allows hang gliders to move effortlessly, requiring just small shifts in weight and posture to turn and land. Mountain Wings can accommodate up to 10 people at a time in training, with rates starting as low as $180 per person for a day lesson (equipment included). While lessons start on the training hill next to the shop, Greg promises that if conditions are good, you’ll be up on the mountainside – and flying off it – by lesson’s end. And you will experience what the birds do. “The glider,” Greg says with a knowing look, “is a tool to feel the air.”

The layout of this 18hole golf course provides any golfer with lots of opportunities to enjoy a great round of golf. Playing the course from the blue tees holes one through nine look like this. Hole No. 1 is a 355yard par 4 with a slight dogleg to the left. Take your tee shot to the left center. A trap is on the right front section of the green. Hole No. 2 is a 547yard par 5 featuring a narrow opening in front of the tee but the fairway then opens up some 75-100 yards from the tee. A straight tee shot is a must here or a lot of trouble will greet you on the left and right. A sand trap is on the left side of the green.

ond shot slightly down hill makes this green reachable in two and a good par or birdie. Hole No. 3 is a 379-yard par 4 slightly uphill with a dogleg left. Best tee shot is right center on top of the hill. From here there is still a slight uphill shot. From 50 to 60 yards from the green there is a small deep ditch which runs across the fairway. Hole No. 4 is a 192-yard par 3. Drive it left center and there is a trap on the left side of this green. Proper selection of your club off the tee will help in reaching this green. Hole No. 5 is a 358-yard par 4 with a dogleg left. Some trees will come into play if you hit left. Hole No. 6 is a 413-yard par 4 which presents every golfer one of the smallest openings from the tee to the fairway. Better keep it straight off the tee; the fairway does open up to the left and there are trees to the right. Best tee shot is left center. Some 100-yards from the tee there is water running in a small stream across the fairway. A trap on the left and right sides of the green also is a challenge. Hole No. 7 is a 435-yard par 5 and the fairway runs straight uphill. This is where you let it all out, with as long a tee shot as you can muster, and then a long iron or fairway wood to this green, which has a trap on the right side. Hole No. 8 is a 312-yard par 4. Sand traps are on the left and right sides of the green and a large tree guards the front of the green, which

makes for an interesting approach shot, to say the least. Hole No. 9 is a 190-yard par 3 slightly uphill and seems to play much longer than the card reads. A tough par 3 but a good tee shot to the green results in a birdie or par. Sand traps are at the front and back of this green. The front nine plays 3,181 yards with a par 36. The Back Nine Playing the blue tees the back nine holes can definitely be labeled as offering golfers some long uphill fairways and here are our tips for a successful round. Hole No. 10 is a 373-yard par 4 with a dogleg to the right. Take your tee shot to the center of the fairway. Don’t go right or the trees will block your second shot to the green. Sand traps guard the left and right front of the green and the right rear. Your second shot makes or breaks your score on this hole. Hole No. 11 is a 186-yard par 3 which tends to play shorter than the yardage posted. Sand traps are on the right and left. If you overshoot this green, there is a downhill slope in the back of CONTINUED ON PAGE 34

the green. Hole No. 12 is a 491-yard par 5 with a dogleg right some 100 plus yards off the tee. Keep the driver in the bag on this tee shot. There is water in front of the green and traps surround this green. We classify this hole a “real good” golf hole and your par 5 can be a challenge here. Hole No. 13 is a 329-yard par 4 with an uphill open fairway with a slight dogleg to the left. Sand traps are in front of this very large green so hitting an accurate approach shot near the pin is important. Hole No. 14 is a 548-yard par 5 and is the longest hole at Tennanah Lake. The fairway runs downhill, there is a pond on the left, keep your ball in the center of the fairway as it narrows going into the green. Stay out of the ditch which runs across the fairway, some 300 yards off the tee. Traps front right and left. Hole No. 15 is a 419-yard par 4, uphill and a straight open fairway. There is a unique covered bridge here which connects the 15th and 16 fairways and this tends to be a conversation piece for all golfers. There is a sand trap on the left and right of this small but challenging green.

Hole No. 16 is a 413-yard par 4 with the fairway running downhill and trees all along the left. Stay in the middle/right side of the fairway to keep out of trouble. There is a sand trap on both the left and right of this green. Hole No. 17 is a 196-yard par 3 with an elevated green. Tends to play longer than it looks, and it takes a good tee shot with a long iron or wood to the green to score your par. Sand traps are on the left and right front of this green. Hole No. 18 is a 408-yard- par 4 with an open fairway running uphill. Keep down the middle. Traps right and left sides of this green. This back nine runs a total of 3,365 yards and records a par 36. Total yards for the 18-holes from the blue tees is 6,546 with a par of 72. This golf course, restaurant, tennis courts and remaining facilities can be reached at 607-4985000.

You’ll be made to feel right at home at the Carriage House STORY AND PHOTOS BY KAITLIN CARNEY

T

he Carriage House in Barryville is part of the historic landscape along the Delaware River. The building, designated a landmark, has been a restaurant and motel since the early 1900s. Husband and wife team Attila and Agnes Benke purchased the restaurant in 2000 and have enjoyed bringing their culinary talents to the area and its many visitors. The Carriage House offers multiple options for dining, including seasonal patio seating, formal dining room and a more casual area in the bar.

The hand-carved wooden barroom echoes the history of the building, and much of the original character has been maintained in the extensive renovations the Benke’s completed. Area bartender Caesar Feltrin, a staple in the Town of Highland dining scene, serves up specialty cocktails, draft and bottled beer, wine by the bottle or glass.

We came across the bridge and we saw this building and loved it. We sold our share of the restaurant bought this and the rest is history…,” they said. The Benkes had their work cut out for them, restoring the historic restaurant that had been shuttered and empty for over three years. “All of the businesses here, they are dedicated to making Barryville a better place to live. The economy has picked up and we’ve got a busy little area here,” Attila explained.

We started with the food that we love, included German and Hungarian dishes, and offer seasonal dishes.

trail to his burrow. He knows enough to gather and store pounds of nuts and seeds for the torpor of his underground winter season. Some chipmunk knowledge is trial and error, as when, at eight weeks old, he leaves the subterranean maternal nest to explore the sunny world on his own. But most knowledge in his little three-ounce body is the result of instinct’s impulse – such as the astonishing use of his face as, well, a shopping cart.

Last month, with winter over, “I began seeing chipmunks with full pouches,” said Wes Gillingham of Catskill Mountainkeeper in Youngsville. “I was taking a walk in the woods and stopped to watch a chipmunk, whose pouch definitely made him look top heavy.” Gillingham pointed out that chipmunks dine largely on tree crops like acorns, beechnuts, black cherry pits and seeds. So their expandable

face pouches, which can enlarge three times bigger than their heads, are handy receptacles for toting food. Researchers have found chipmunks cramming 48 cherry pits into cheek pouches. It’s not unusual for the blurred little reddish streak to leap away with 70 sunflower seeds jammed in his face. But chipmunks are omnivores — they feed on both plants and animals. Unlike squirrels, they are mostly ground-bound, eating seeds, nuts, berries, fruits, flowers and mushrooms. They also favor grasshoppers, crickets, worms, snails and frogs. And while they prefer terra firma, they can speed up a bird feeder, as many homeowners well know, and they can race up trees to eat bird eggs.

How to deter the hungry, swift-footed chipmunk Homeowners and particularly gardeners may not appreciate the delights of the bright little chipmunk that has tunneled through their flower bulbs. Although chipmunks do not cause serious agricultural damage, they can eat fruit, seeds and seedlings from the backyard garden. They can also cause structural damage by digging their underground homes beneath decks, porch stairs, walls or foundations. Use 1/4-inch mesh hardware cloth to keep chipmunks away from gardens and flowerbeds. To discourage chipmunks from burrowing around the foundation of your house, make sure that ground covers, trees and shrubs don’t connect wooded areas with the foundation. Move woodpiles or debris away from the house. Keep in mind that chipmunks can’t help but be attracted to bird feeders where they gather spilled seed or race right up to feed.

common small mammals. Reddish brown with a single black stripe running down the center of its back, a chipmunk body also features a white stripe between two black stripes down each side, from the neck to the base of the tail. There’s a white stripe above and below its eyes and its white belly. The tiniest member of the squirrel family, chipmunks weigh from three to five ounces and are 8 to 10 inches long counting their furry, flattened tail, which is black on the upper side, rust underneath and fringed with white hairs. Real chipmunks don’t sing, unlike Alvin and the Chipmunks of radio and movie fame, but they are vocal. Their sounds fall into several categories, including a sharp “Chip!” from which they get their name, and a shrill, bird-like, repeated chirp produced as an alarm call and also used during mating season.

(this one is lined with leaves) and for storing food. Sometimes there are more than one food storage area, each holding several quarts of seeds and nuts. The Eastern chipmunk’s genus name Tamias, which means steward or husbandman, refers to this storage ability and also to the chipmunk’s role in seed dispersal. Chipmunks value cleanliness – their burrows contain a specific trash chamber for broken nut shells and seed husks, and another area for a chipmunk bathroom.

BURROW ME DEEP

The alert, swift-footed animal tends to be solitary, spending most of its time collecting and storing underground food for the winter, when he then curls into a tight ball of fur and sleeps. Scientists say that during chipmunk hibernation, the heart rate declines from a normal 350 beats per minute to as low as four beats per minute. Still, they are not deep hibernators and, because they do not have the ability to store fat as do hibernating bears, for example, they rely on their food cache to keep them alive. The long sleep ends in early March. Chipmunks soon begin their spring mating season, which is followed by another in summer.

Chipmunks are different from squirrels in that they burrow rather than nest in trees. They are wonderful diggers, creating complex burrows that are 12 to 30 feet long. They begin a tunnel by digging in some halfway hidden spot under brush or a rock pile or at the base of an old log. Any bit of dirt unearthed is carefully carried away in the face pouch or spread around so as to hide the presence of the tunnel’s entrance. A chipmunk first digs a several-foot-long sloping tunnel, then carves horizontally. To ensure that larger predators have no access, the tunnel is only two inches high, just tall enough for his body. He packs the earth tightly on all sides. Different chambers are created for sleeping

After a gestation period of 31 days, the mother births a litter of 2 to 6 young, each about the size of a bumblebee. The babies remain underground in the burrow for six weeks. Several weeks later, after repeated forays from the burrow to the green earth above, they are ready to be on their own. That is when, with no consciousness of it at all, chipmunks begin to play their own role in the wise world of nature. Often they themselves serve as a food source for hawks, owls, snakes, fox and bobcats. But alive, they are important in planting seeds and helping things grow. “Chipmunks’ burrowing aerates and recycles soil,” points out Wes Gillingham. “The burrowing brings up mineralized earth to the surface, which supports the trout lilies and spring beauties that are coming up now in the woods.” And here and there, they do manage to charm us two-legged creatures, as we catch a glimpse of a tiny chipmunk perched on a stone wall or tree stump, surveying the surroundings she calls her own.

TIM SIMOS | NATIONAL WILD TURKEY FEDERATION

ON THE COVER: Two magnificent male specimens make their way through an open field. According to Sullivan County Longbeards President Butch Kortright, the wild turkey nearly went extinct in the 1930s and it was only through the intervention of hunters that it was saved.

ack in 1976 the very first Sullivan County chapter of the National Wild Turkey Federation (NWTF) was founded with 10 members dedicated to the conservation of the wild turkey and the preservation of local hunting heritage. But in the late 1980s the local chapter went under. Then, in 2002, the local NWTF chapter was, as current President Butch Kortright called it, “recreated,” reborn under the moniker 60 • CATSKILL-DELAWARE, SUMMER 2014

“Longbeards.” In 2003, a year after the birth of the Longbeards, Kortright would join the group. “I guess I was a year out,” he said jokingly. Later in his first year with the Longbeards, Kortright was named Vice President, and in 2006 President. “We’ve grown from just 10 members when the chapter was originally founded in ’76, to about 85 members and 15 committee members today,” affirmed Kortright.

Sportsmen’s Clubs and Sullivan Renaissance on what Kortright called a “revitalization” project at DeHoyos Park in Monticello. And that’s not all they’ve done over the years since 2002, as they’ve held an annual youth ice fishing derby, hosted trapping education courses, various Butch Kortright hunting and firearm President | safety courses, a shooting clinic with local Boy Scouts, turkey hunting seminars in local schools, hand out an annual scholarship to a lucky, qualified area senior, and even send an area youth off to DEC summer camp each year and much more. “We’re about hunting and the outdoors,” offered Kortright, adding, “But as you can see from the various activities we do in communities throughout the county, our real focus is on area youth.”

‘We’ve grown from just 10 members when the chapter was originally founded in ‘76, to about 85 members.’

of our wounded warriors on hunts.” A veritable treasure trove of turkey facts, Kortright harkened back to the 1930s when he said that “the wild turkey as we know it nearly went extinct. What a shame that would have been.” Kortright then asked, “And do you know who saved it?” “Hunters,” he exclaimed, quickly answering his own question. “Responsible hunters.” Though turkey federation membership numbers are admittedly down statewide, Kortright remained hopeful: “…with more than 120,000 turkey [hunting] tags sold last year alone, that’s a lot of potential members that we as an organization need to tap into,” he said. On April 13, the Longbeards held their annual Superfund Banquet, raising close to $30,000 to help finance their programs and charitable initiatives. Initiatives such as the group’s annual youth hunts – held both during turkey and deer hunting seasons – youth fishing contests and much more. Several years ago the Longbeards teamed up with the Sullivan County Federation of

On the road to Rio with rod and Revealing one of the reel best-kept secrets of Sullivan County fishing BY JACK & KAY DANCHAK

O

ne of the best-kept secrets of fishing is the Rio Reservoir that lies on the southern end of the Mongaup River water system. Water flows and releases start north of the Rio at the Toronto Reservoir (1,000 acres) and then continue south to 9-mile long Swinging Bridge Reservoir, then to Mongaup Falls Reservoir and last to the Rio Reservoir. The Rio Reservoir is used for generating hydroelectric power and the construction of the dam was completed in 1927. It is currently owned by Southern Energy NY-Gen, LLC. Rio has a gravity dam of earthen construction, the core is homogeneous, concrete and the foundation is rock. The dam’s height is 101 feet with a length of 1487 feet. Maximum discharge is 39,000 cubic feet per second. Its capacity is 19,500 acrefeet and normal storage is 15,037 acrefeet. It drains an area of 195 square miles. To get to the Rio, take route 42 South

from Monticello to the hamlet of Forestburg, then 2¼ miles southwest on Old Plank Road. The Rio has a surface area of 435 acres, elevation is 813 feet above sea level, shore length of 9.3 miles and maximum depth is 80 feet. The New York State Department of Environmental Conservation (DEC) has a public access boat launch and parking area for 15 cars and trailers on the northern end and a “hand-launch” on the southern end off Rio Dam Road with parking for 10 cars but no trailer capacity. Boats at this launch site must be hand carried to the water. Both DEC launch sites are open from April 1–November 1. Electric trolling motors are allowed, but absolutely no gasoline motors. Ice fishing is not allowed. The Rio has a variety of different species of fish including: smallmouth and largemouth bass, brown trout, black crappie, bluegill, bullhead, chain CONTINUED ON PAGE 69

pickerel, rock bass, yellow perch and walleye. The northern section of the Rio has the shallowest water and is noted for holding an abundance of largemouth bass and pickerel, but you can also catch them throughout the entire reservoir. The further south you fish towards the dam, the deeper the water gets and this section is noted for catching brown trout and walleye. Crappie, bluegill, rock bass, bullhead and yellow perch can be caught almost everywhere. Many artificial lures are used to catch fish. We have found out that the colors of blue and black or a combination of both works well in the Rio. The most popular bass lures used are: soft plastic worms, spinnerbaits, jigs, crankbaits and top water lures at times. Live minnows and shiners are noted to catch brown trout and walleye

along with trolling deepwater crankbaits and using the “drop-shot rig” in deep water. Some anglers say they have caught brown trout up to 12 lbs. and largemouth bass up to 8 lbs. Some people enjoy canoeing and kayaking and the Rio is ideal for this boating recreation because gasoline motorboats are not allowed, making canoeing and kayaking a little easier and safer to get around. When visiting the Rio make sure you bring your camera because there are many nesting resident bald eagles present and there isn’t a day that eagles are not seen. We hope after reading this article, you will take the opportunity to fish or visit the Rio Reservoir and see what you have been missing! For further information about the Rio or any other body of water on the Mongaup River system, call DEC Region 3 Headquarters, fishery division at New Paltz at 256-3161.

ommunities which the accident of geography has placed next to a river can enjoy certain advantages and can boast of a special atmosphere their “interior” neighbors might have a hard time matching. The bigger riverside hamlets along the Delaware River within Sullivan County – Barryville, Narrowsburg and Callicoon – truly come alive in the summer with ongoing and regular events as well as unique shopping and recreational opportunities. Of the three, Callicoon has experienced a noticeable renaissance over the past few years with a thriving business scene and throngs of weekend visitors. Its signature event, the Tractor Parade, has drawn wide attention and attracted hordes to its old style charm. So, for those who plan to visit the hamlet, here’s a handy list of activities that will help you plan your trip. 72 • CATSKILL-DELAWARE, SUMMER 2014

The Delaware River provides recreational opportunities all along its length, and marvelous scenery as well. This is a sunset looking northwest from the Callicoon Bridge.

Big Events Tractor Parade Sunday, June 8 • Noon–3 p.m. Close to 300 tractors of all sizes, shapes, makes and vintage will parade down Main Street starting at noon. There is no bad vantage point, but a good spot is near the railroad square, where emcee Jesse Ballew calls out the tractor’s make/year and has entertaining exchanges with some of the drivers. After the parade, stay for the chicken barbecue and entertainment at the Delaware Community Center on Creamery Road. See our special publication about the Tractor Parade coming out on June 3 for more information.

Callicoon Fire Department’s Pancake Breakfast Sunday, June 8 • 7–11 a.m. Before attending the Tractor Parade later that day, enjoy a complete breakfast at the Callicoon Firehouse. It’s more than pancakes! CONTINUED ON PAGE 75

There is so much to do and see on the summer calendar of events for Sullivan County, it’s more than a postcard will hold!

FRI., MAY 23 Mysteryland Festival at Bethel Woods Center for the Arts - The world’s longest-running electronic music festival, Mysteryland, is making its US debut in 2014 at Bethel Woods Center for the Arts. The move marks an historic moment for organizer ID&T, the brains behind high-profile festivals such as Sensation, Tomorrowland, TomorrowWorld and Q-dance. Mysteryland’s multi-faceted approach has been a winning formula for no less than two decades. The festival offers its guests a creative journey, combining music with theatre, movies, interactive installation art, street performers and spectacular shows at bizarre decorated stages. To create this amazing spectacle, the festival organizers collaborate with a wide range of creative peo-

ple from all over the world. As a nomad Mysteryland travels across the globe to find international artists willing to work with the festival and to make it an even richer experience. The musical offerings are also all about discovery. In addition to legends from the international dance scene, the festival provides a stage for new and local talents: the next generation. Mysteryland has been a leading pioneer on the dance festival scene in Europe and the US since 1993 and has inspired numerous other organizers and events. Only 20,000 tickets will be available. The tickets will be sold in order of registration. Continues all weekend. For info, call 583-2000 or 800-7453000, email info@ bethelwoodscenter.org or visit www. bethelwoodscenter.org.

Rain: A Tribute to the Beatles, at Bethel Woods Center for the Arts, Bethel; $31.50, $39.50, $51.50, $65 and $85 for reserved seating. Direct from their phenomenally successful Broadway engagement, the internationally-acclaimed Beatles concert, RAIN: A Tribute to the Beatles, performs. As “the next best thing to seeing The Beatles!” (Associated Press), RAIN performs the full range of The Beatles’ discography live onstage, including the most complex and challenging songs that The Beatles themselves recorded in the studio but

never performed for an audience. In addition to the updated sets that include brand new LED, High-Definition screens and multimedia content, new songs have also been included with the launch of the 2013-14 Tour. Together longer than The Beatles, RAIN has mastered every song, gesture and nuance of the legendary foursome, delivering a totally live, note-for-note performance that’s as infectious as it is transporting. From the early hits to later classics (“I Want To Hold Your Hand,” “Hard Day’s Night,” “Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band,” “Let It Be,” “Come Together,” “Hey Jude” and more), this adoring tribute will take you back to a time when all you needed was love, and a little help from your friends! For info or tickets, call 583-2000 or 800-745-3000 or visit www.bethelwoodscenter.org.
