SPRING IS COMING TO HARRIMAN STATE PARK, SO PUT ON YOUR HIKING BOOTS….

I want to share with you the last day of winter climbing as the temperatures unexpectedly soared to 80 degrees, catching these winter tableaus unaware. In just one day the laurel is starting to blossom and the maple and dogwood buds have appeared. But you can see by the following pictures that the woods of New York State were still transparent, mysterious, and barren, and the slabs of granite free of foliage. I can’t wait to return and show the unfolding of spring.

We trudged through numerous swollen streams

The rocks on the Red Dot trail

One of the many abandoned iron mines from the Revolutionary War

A lone survivor of the harsh winter storms

Nature's haunting designs

With Bernard, the photographer, at Harriman's answer to Times Square, a confluence of trails

Water, water everywhere....

  1. Gee, these are wonderful pictures, Meg – thanks for sharing them . . . of course, it doesn’t look at all like Alaska, and I still think you’ve gotta see http://alaskab4udie.wordpress.com . .. but not in April because breakup is pretty mushy on the ground, but beautiful sunshine on the mountains.
