A trip to Harriman State Park and Bear Mountain

On Saturday we took a picnic lunch and drove through Harriman State Park in New York and up Bear Mountain. The weather was perfection: not too hot or humid. Just clear blue skies and a lovely breeze. What better weather for a convertible like Mia to stretch her legs in?

The view is beautiful no matter which direction you look.

What a great day to just sit on a rock and take in the beauty of the countryside and the Hudson River.

The next few photos were taken from the scenic view point.

A barge was nice enough to be heading up river while we were there.

Under the Bear Mountain Bridge it goes!

We stopped at roadside picnic area to eat our lunch. I just love our picnic backpack. It has everything you need: plates, cutlery, salt & pepper, cutting board, and even a tablecloth and napkins.

Lunch was chicken salad sandwiches. Cha-Cha-Chicken Salad has a can of crushed pineapple, cream cheese, mayo, a touch of curry and orange flavored cranberries. (And chicken of course!) Very tasty!

This tree was right by our picnic table. What makes people want to carve their names/initials into a tree’s bark? This one has certainly had more than its fair share of signatures.

A nice drive that didn’t take all day. We were back home and in the pool by two o’clock. We’ll do this again in the fall to catch the colors!
