About Time

To be hiking again. It has been way too long.

We stayed closer to home, heading to Westchester to tackle Anthony's Nose, a rock outcropping above the Bear Mountain Bridge. The Camp Smith Trail takes you along a ridge along the Hudson River, with views of the river and Bear Mountain beyond. While the views from this hike are amazing, the downside is that the trail runs on a narrow strip between Routes 6/202 and the Camp Smith artilary range. The closeness of the road, and the metronorth rail, meant that we never left the sounds of "civilization" behind and really felt like we were out in nature. And the artillary range was an oddity in-and-of itself. No worries about losing track of the blue trail markers, because you could always follow the trail of "warning," "posted" and "do not enter" signs posted by the government.
