Bull Hill

We took a train up to Cold Spring on Saturday morning to meet some friends (thanks for the pictures) at their Main Street mansion of an apartment and hike up Bull Hill, also known as Mount Taurus. Part of the handsome Hudson Highlands, Bull Hill (1,620 ft) is taller than its more famous neighbor, Breakneck Ridge (1,260 feet).

Before the hike, we stopped at the farmer’s market for some jalapeƱo-cheddar bread and dijon, then carried onto Bull Hill’s south base, home to the remnants of an old quarry. It’s an easy hike to the top, and although I wished I hadn’t dragged the snowshoes on the train only to leave them in the car, there was enough snow, quiet, and views of the Hudson to remind us not to wish winter away just yet.

    I went to the Hudson valley for the first time over New Years… I can’t believe, with all the traveling I’ve done, that it took me so long… Check out the Retreat at Omi if you make your way up there again…

    I went to SUNY New Paltz in the 70′s and left a piece of my heart in the mid-hudson valley. Soon as I saw the picture I felt like I was back again.
    Thanks for picts. and great tunes.
