When on our fall trip last year, one of the neatest places we visited was the Minnewaska State Park in Rochester, NY. We did a lot of hiking, saw a bunch of waterfalls, and it was utterly beautiful.
This photo was taking from the top of a cliff at the edge of the park. The park itself is raised on a mountaintop and surrounding it is the Mohonk Preserve, a huge slab of land under federal protection.
In the distance you can see a mountain with a shrine looking thing on it. That is Skytop Tower at Mohonk Lake, a very very very expansive spa/vacation spot. The crazy part? The tower is almost ten miles away.
