One of my best late summer “hikes”: The Freethought Trail in New York State. From the Hudson River to the Finger Lakes, we visited the homes of Elizabeth Cady Stanton, Robert Green Ingersoll, Harriet Tubman, John Burroughs and even Eleanor Roosevelt. We saw places where Frederick Douglass, Susan B. Anthony, Ernestine Rose and others stood for freedom of conscience and human rights. I highly recommend the journey. . .for me it was really a Secular Pilgrimage.
