Gettysburg Battlefield 2014

On our way back to Albany from Washington DC we visited the Gettysburg Battlefield. It was really cool! There’s an auto tour complete with stops all the way around the battlefield and there’s monuments dedicated to the individuals and groups that fought. Since we visited over July 4th weekend the place was packed and there was a lot going on; we ended up staying a lot longer than we originally planned just because it was so interesting. Well worth the visit!

Enjoy the pictures!

Prospect Mountain (ADKs) and Kaaterskill Falls (Catskills), NY

I ran up to Lake George and hiked up Prospect Mountain in the Adirondacks. It wasn’t an overly long trail it’s just that it went up the side of the mountain with little to no switch backs for about 1,200ft. Much like all the mountains in this area, the switchbacks were missing. No idea if the technology hasn’t arrived yet or what. It was a good view on top and a beautiful day. Next, I ran down to the Catskills to hike Kaaterskills Falls. It was a fun, short hike to the base of the falls. The cool breeze felt great on such a hot and muggy day.

Enjoy the photos!
