Walkway Over the Hudson

Back in February we flew to Newburgh, NY for a long weekend in the Hudson Valley. The weather was cold but the river and mountains were beautiful, and the small towns were charming.

Here are a few pictures from Walkway Over the Hudson State Historic Park, a former railway bridge converted into a park and walking trail.

A mile or so downriver, the elegant Mid-Hudson bridge carries US Highway 44 and NY Highway 55 across to the town of Highland and the Shawangunk foothills beyond.
