"Two weeks ago, I wanted to go somewhere nice with a couple friends, enjoy the evening and maybe check out the sunset. Originally I had my heart set on the Village of Cold Spring, Little Stony Point Park or the Cornish Estate, but while we were driving, the sunset was practically calling to us and the trail head of Breakneck Ridge seemed like the right choice, all of a sudden. I hadn't been there all year, and I'm pretty sure one of my friends had never been there - the view, as you can see, did not disappoint.
There were a few other people up there taking in the scene, as well - some talking about Bannerman Island, off in the distance. Being the Online Manager of the Bannerman Castle Trust, I get a kick out of hearing what strangers say about the Island sometimes. And, I was glad to hear the people who were talking about it that evening were fairly well-informed.
For those who don't know, the Bannerman Castle Trust hosts tours of the Island every weekend, departing from Beacon Dock at 11am and 12:30pm, from May through the end of October. If you haven't been, you should come check it out."
