Photo Taken by Penny Smith
"Rosie, my dog, has a favorite hike and that is most definitely Mount Beacon. One of the more popular and accessible hikes in the Hudson Valley, Mount Beacon is the highest peak of the Hudson Highlands. There was once the Mount Beacon Incline Railway which stopped running in 1978; the track remnants can be seen running up the mountain. This photo was taken on a late September afternoon after a run up Mt. Beacon with my two favorite souls, pictured in this photo."
