Ashokan Reservoir

Saturday October 10, 2015

Several of us are not ready to call it quits for this riding season. Why? The weather in Upstate NY has been sensational this fall. Yes you do need some extra layers to remain warm in the morning  but by the end of the day, you are peeling the layers off.  That is the way it was on Saturday. 

Four of us traveled south from Albany NY to the Ashokan Reservoir. This is one of the reservoirs that provide water to NYC.  The Reservoir is man made and is on the sites of the former communities of Olive City and Olivebridge.  The foliage was at midpoint in my point of view and the walk across the pedestrian bridge is well worth going.  You should have some great time to view in the next week or so.

If you make the trip from Albany using secondary roads plan on it taking several hours of your day. We started at 9:30 and with a few breaks to eat we got home at 5:15 pm.  I want to thanks my friends Angela and Terry, my Wife Kathy for making the day great!
