Hudson Valley hiking in March...

.
means hiking *on* the river...






as you know I moved to the Hudson Valley from Memphis before last winter... quite a weather shift... I heard from locals that last year was the coldest they could remember in decades.. "what winters used to be".. or "what winters are supposed to be"... it was cold... well, that was before this year came... we set a record in February - average temperature = 9 degrees Fahrenheit... not average low... average *temperature*.... whew... but you know what?  it is good for working.... and this past Friday when the sun came out, having long eclipsed forty hours in the shop, a few of us took off for a hike in the sun... it was wonderful...

we started off from the house.. hiked down Burget Creek... then onto the Hudson.. all the way down to Catskill Creek... and finally back to the Mill to finish up the day's work...

notice the crazy ice breaks.. the Hudson is tidal... and that makes for some really cool ice breaks...
