Memorial Day Weekend #2: Hiking the Hudson Highlands

Awesome way to spend a Monday

Brendan and I haven't been hiking since around this time last year, so we decided to go hiking for Memorial Day weekend. Our friends wanted to come too, so on Monday we went to the Hudson Highlands, which are about 1 hour north of New York City.

We were trying to hike an intermediate trail called "Anthony's nose", but I guess our sense of orientation is not all that great, so we ended hiking a trail called "Breackneck Ridge". It was a lot more intense than the trail we had intended to, but it was fantastic. Here are some pictures from that day.

For the first part of the trail, there was a lot more rockclimbing thank hiking

Brendan and I rest and enjoy the view

This view of the Hudson river valley was worth all the effort
