Yesterday morning Matt and I drove up to Cold Spring, NY for a much needed hike. Cold Spring is one of my favorite little towns on the Hudson River and it's a hub for tons of great trails. Yesterday we did a 6 mile roundtrip trail to Mount Taurus in about 3 hours. It would have taken less time, but we lost the trail twice.. ok that, and I was kind of slow yesterday.
The leaves look like they might consider changing colors in the next couple of weeks. As we continued out of the sun and into the forest I noticed some bright colored leaves already resting on the ground. I hope we're able to hike during the peak of the changing leaves.. they're so beautiful- definitely one of my favorite things about fall.
There were so many dogs on the trail yesterday. I wish Boo was a good hiker. I would love to have him on the trail, but he isn't too keen on walking long distances. It's a struggle to get him to walk all the way around the block at home- a mere 1/2 mile. We even saw a tiny Yorkshire Terrier and once Matt and I saw a Pomeranian hiking on a trail that was definitely not easy at all. Maybe Boo just needs to man up.
We've been on a few trails this year hoping to get a glimpse of the Manhattan skyline from some viewpoints, but never managed to hit the points on clear days. We finally caught a break in the clouds yesterday and saw the skyline far off in the distance. We were pretty excited about it.
