A necessity for me each Fall is some kind of trip to look at the colorful foliage. Without a big trip planned this year, my husband and I ventured up to Harriman and Bear Mt. State Parks in NY earlier in the week. The park entrance was just 2 hours away … quite doable for a day trip. We headed to Sloatsburg, NY where we picked up 7 Lakes Drive which connects the southern end of Harriman State Park to Bear Mt. State Park to the north. There was no fee to enter the park and the scenery was very nice. We stopped at some lakes and did some light hiking. Our little Welsh Terrier thought he was in heaven and enjoyed swimming in the lakes and hunting chipmunks. Once in Bear Mt. State Park we took the Perkins Scenic Drive to the top of the mountain. Here we took in some nice views of the Hudson River Valley. The park is so close and easy to get to, I’m sure I’ll be visiting again.
