Biking at Minnewaska State Park Preserve

Today we drove about two and a half hours north to Minnewaska State Park Preserve in New York State, on the Shawangunk Mountain Ridge, adjoining the Catskill Mountains. We biked for about fifteen miles, and had beautiful views of two lakes and many scenic overlooks.

There were many vistas with steep rock formations.

We stopped at Castle Point overlook for lunch. Here you can see the rock formation known as Gertrude's Nose in the distance.

Thanks for stopping by Flitzy, Anne...I've enjoyed your photos of the Catskills, and the canoeing. You live in a beautiful area.
