Palisades

Matt and I went for a hike in Palisades Interstate Park, in NJ, north of the GW Bridge, heading towards the NY State line. It was beautiful and of equal importance, we didn't see any snakes! We got a bit lost and ended up scrambling over lots and lots and lots of rocks along the Hudson River. (I think they are called The Giant Steps, which reminded me of Giants Table;-)) But thanks to 2 rock climbing hippies, we found our way back through the woods and back to the parking lot. YEA hippies!

Perhaps we should have paid a bit more attention to the warning on the website: "Perhaps owing to our proximity to New York City, many first-time Palisades hikers are surprised at how rugged our trails can get. Please be prepared!" Translation: "Heh city slickers, don't do anything that will result in us having to send out a rescue team to get you and your designer handbag off of the rocks."


Us in front of the Peanut Leap Cascade. There was also the remnants of an old building.

If a GIANT tree falls in the woods and no one is around, does it make a sound? I am pretty sure this tree made a big sound when it fell!

A swing on the Hudson River...very cool!

this was the last shot we took thinking that these would be the only rocks we'd encounter. Wrong! This was just the start...and the beginner part of the scramble.

Note to self: Leave the Prada handbag at home when hiking.

Aw, Katie - how sweet of you to comment on Matt's hair!

What a fun escape from the city. Wonder why the SATC girls never made it out there?
