Hudson River School

Indian Summer has arrived in Poughkeepsie, New York.  Blue skies and warm temperatures coax everyone outside.  In our case that meant a boat tour on the Hudson river.

At the end of the ride we returned to find the dock blocked by boaters as anxious to be outside as we were.  The horn blasts and heated conversations have been edited out.  The 360 degree turn we made in the middle of the river has been left in.

In the Hudson Valley children are taught the Hudson was America’s first Mississippi River.  And assured that it is still the prettiest.  As a one time resident of the area I will not dispute the claim.

Here is a quick look at the view the fishermen, boaters, hikers and commuters are so proud of.

    Nice movie. It does leave one thinking about an unexpected warm day in October and that’s very pleasant.
