Escape to Mahopac

 I took a quick trip up to NY to visit with old friends.  I love Georgia don't get me wrong but there is nothing prettier than the Hudson Valley for me.  Saturday morning it was 29 degrees (that is why I live in Ga now).  Kathy and I went out to see some sights.  By the afternoon it had warmed up and was beautiful.  This is the overlook on Storm King Mt/  Across the river is Cold Spring.  The leaves aren't at peak yet but it was so clear and crisp.
 Looking down at West Point.  Did not realize how big it is.  The buildings that you see in pix are on the other side of that slope.  That is the soccer field.
 Bear Mt. Bridge from Fort Montgomery. Looking down the river toward Peekskill
 This is the "goat path".  This road wides up the mountain from the river level to the bridge across the Hudson.  That brick wall is all that separates you from a long way down.  It is a really pretty road but not constructed for today's speeds. 
Overlook on the "goat path" looking down river toward Croton and Indian Point.

I had such a wonderful time. I so wish it was not so far away.  i visited with former co-workers that I had not seen in 14 years.  Also my old boss.  He was the most wonderful man to work for-fair, honest and funny.

I have more pix from our trip to Kykuit.  I have to resize them first.
