What I want to remember about today:
That I really wanted to go hiking and we made it happen, in spite of... having to bail on the early hike, missing the train to the later hike, rushing back home for our hiking book and nearly missing the next train, and then discovering that the last train to our hiking destination was the one we missed. Grrrrrr.......but I remember thinking "it's going to be ok" and it was better than ok.
Going up....and up....and up...
All of the people scrambling up the rocks with us. Everyone seemed to be out on this gorgeous fall day!
Watching the mile-long train across the river, (or was it only a half-mile? a lively debate ensued), while eating a morning snack of bananas and Oreos.
Lots of talking with husband-o, as always...then a bit of solitude on the wooded trail heading back. Nice to stop for a chat, a hug and a reminder to root for the home team!
The light on the stream, the sun shining through the trees, the layers of color...sky, mountain, foliage...
The sugar maple leaves in town. (Right, Alexis? Sugar maples?)
Hot chocolate in town before we headed home, tangy-sweet Ida Red apples with ricotta salata cheese and watching the sun set over the Hudson.
