In the Age of Trump, especially in the Age of Trump, we all need a change of pace to reset. I have been hiking and camping in the Catskill Mountain region of New York State for almost fifty years. But the hills are getting a little too steep for my knees, so this year I decided to spend a week mid-summer exploring both sides of the flatter terrain of the Hudson River. Felicia and I rented a cabin on Spring Lake about three miles north of the town of Red Hook in Dutchess County (see map). It turned out to be a very good location for eating, hiking, biking, kayaking, history, and entertainment.
