Nibbling a handout, a European fallow deer at Cats kill Game Farm near Cairo delights a young naturalist. Carefree children race a barge along a headland once known as Kinderhook- "children's point"-for the youngsters who gathered on the shore here when early trading boats went by. Dutch settlers took the name with them when they moved the town five miles inland. Plod ding barges headed westward leave the river at Cohoes; canals link the Hudson with the Great Lakes, Lake Champlain, and the St. Lawrence Seaway. Flaxen-haired rider on a Catskill slope near Claryville learns the trails in one of America's most popular resort areas. Visitors camp, hike, ride, and fish.
