Hiking in Harriman State Park,
May 1, 2005

About an hour northwest of New York City, Harriman State Park, which straddles the Appalachian Trail, is a wonderful place for a day hike. I escaped there with my friends Bill and Troy.

Beautiful scenery!

The day before, we had our requisite protein injection, in the form of Bill's wonderful chicken bouillabaisse.

The "Lemon Squeezer"

Yes, the Appalachian trail runs directly through this very narrow squeeze. Not for the faint of heart.
