So I bet you is wonnering wot all that has to do with my hike today. I will tell you. We hiked 9 miles at Hudson Highlands State Park in Noo York. Furst we went into the woods and found a road. A road in the middle of the woods! I wonner where this goes to...
ere be some pikshures of wot it used to look like in the olden days. Wowser, that sure woz a pritty mansion back in the day.
Moving onward we commed to some waterfalls. There be some litter (grrrrr) but we did not pick it up coz it be glass bottles. They be too heavy to carry and mom is skeered if'n we fall down and the bottles break they might cut us and steal our bloods so it be too dangerous and we had to leave them there.
Then we had to start climbing coz if'n you dussn't climb up, you dussn't get any seeniks.
TA DA! Seeniks! That mountain ofur there on the udder side of the Hudson River do be Storm King Mountain where we hiked in the spring.
And here be Bannerman Castle on Pollepel Island in the Hudson River:
OK, and so we has this nifty feeture on our new camera where we can make pan-o-rama pikshures all instant magic like. It do be furry kewl and here be one of the seenik so you can see it all in one pikshure:
So this be Bull Hill where we is going next but furst we has to climb down off of Breakneck Ridge where we is now, then back up again:
So we get to the bottom of Breakneck Ridge and I found a dairy barn wot used to belong to Mr. Cornish!
So then we started climbing up that Bull Hill after I had some refreshments:
It woz hawt and I woz getting tired but we made it and here be a seenik of that Hudson River from Bull Hill:
So rememmer I menshunned a quarry afore where they woz blasting the Bull Hill with Dy-No-Mite? There be trees growing back now and you can walk around inside the quarry where there used to be mountain but that part of the mountain now be gone furefur and efur.
So then we woz back at the car but we wozn't done hiking yet. We hopped ofur the street and went to Little Stony Point to see the Hudson River rilly close.
