lazy day kaaterskill

Back in New York and missing Peru.
I realize could be making more of an effort to embrace nearby outdoor possibilities that don't require international flights. 
The weekend preceding my trip to South America, I had whet my whistle with Breakneck Ridge, a reminder of how easy it can be to take an early morning train towards beautiful hiking loops of varied terrain and views.
At a belated Passover themed dinner party, adventure prospects were considered amongst friends and the following weekend five of us squeezed ourselves into a car and made our merry way to the Catskills. The possibilities up there are endless, lucky New Yorkers that we are.  On the eventual agenda for our day: Kaaterskill Falls and Plateau Mountain Lookout just in time for sunset. 
In between: local flair, food, and beverage. 
A perfect spring day and hopefully many more to come.
