Cold Spring

After digging out the car we drove to The Riverview Restaurant on Fair Street, off Main Street in Cold Spring, New York, and had a lovely lunch while overlooking the Hudson. Next we drove to have a quick look at Foundry Dock Park. Our final stop was an attempt to find the waterfall at Indian Brook Falls but I could not find the trail head in the snow. I’ll try again in the Spring. (check out the links)

Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays

West Point Foundry Preserve

There are ruins and a few buildings left over form when the foundry was active. I was hoping for a waterfall but didn’t find it. Here’s a link to some of its history. Sometime I would like to visit the Putnam Museum.

Foundry Brook

We drove up to Cold Springs, New York on Saturday. Marc was concerned about the possibility of ice on the roads. The roads were clear but the parking lot at Foundry Brook was not. We got stuck. Luckily a kind couple helped dig out the car. I had never been to West Point Foundry Brook Preserve (location and about) before. It was lovely in the snow. More to come…

Stonecrop Gardens

Stonecrop Gardens is just east of Cold Spring, NY on Route 301. It’s a beautiful and tranquil spot to visit. Stonecrop Gardens was originally the home of Anne and Frank Cabot and became a public garden in 1992.

Cold Spring NY

A charming town for a day trip from NYC. We ate at the excellent Hudson Hill’s Cafe.
