We haven't explored much of the Capital and Catskill regions of New York State (even though I lived at the northern fringe of the Catskills as a kid), so it was with great delight that we made it to Hudson and Catskill, NY, yesterday. It was GREAT to be on the road again.
We wore our NewYorkTraveler.net t-shirts and I drove in my car with the NewYorkTraveler.net magnets... and we got a bit of attention. :)
We visited Olana State Historic Site in Hudson, NY. It was once the amazing Persian "palace" of famed artist Frederic Church (he is known for his most famous work "Heart of the Andes"). The site is just amazing.
I did a full review with loads of photos on my formal travel blog, NewYorkTraveler.net. Please go see my post and leave a comment! Would YOU ever build a house like Olana? I know I would!
