Hudson Highlands

Today I am showing a photo not from NYC, but from the surrounding area. This is a shot taken on a recent weekend hike near Cold Spring, New York, about an hour north of the city. There are beautiful hiking trails there (and some are a little challenging!) but you are rewarded with some amazing views of the Hudson River and the surrounding mountains. This is a photo from a spot called breakneck ridge. I want to go back and take another shot when the leaves are changing colors in the fall.

I love that area! It should be gorgeous in the fall. Did you visit the Boscobel Mansion?

It looks an interesting area, one I'd like. The Hudson must be deep to take barges of that size.
N Y state has some stunning scenery and must be good to escape to after NYC. But like many to towns and cities I suspect that its only a few people from NY who actually go there.

Breakneck Ridge ~~~~ what a name that says "Be Careful" I'll bet your hike was great. And what a view.
Love this shot.

Thanks for your visits! Eliane, no we didn't see the Boscobel Mansion but I've heard it's really nice - I'll have to go there on another visit.

Greg, no I've never been to the western part of New York. I must get there one of these days!
