2017 Hiking Favorites (2)

My second favorite hiking photo of the year! This was a sunset after exiting the woods in Ward Pound Ridge Reservation (late October). The contrast between the sky and the trees is what makes the photo special for me.

The Sunset At Ward Pound Ridge

It was truly an odd feeling to be on the trail today and after almost always being a party to the woods waking up, I was instead for once looking at the coming night. Being pretty deep in the woods and surrounded by many hills, the darkness enveloped me much quicker than the morning light does as the sun rises. As I exited the woods in almost total darkness, I was able to catch the last of the sunset off in the distance.

Happy Hiking!!!

Hike to feel the curve of the trail and the soft dirt kicked up from your boots

Hike to feel the cool morning breeze rushing over you

Hike to see the sunrise

Hike to witness a sunset

Hike for the views

Hike because you can

December Sunset in NY

A crisp, beautiful early December sunset in Mahopac, NY.
