Yellow, Red and Orange Everywhere

Since it's autumn, Josh and I celebrated by spending a weekend around Albany picking apples, hiking along the Helderberg Escarpment/Indian Ladder trail and dipping our feet in the Hudson River.

The Hudson view from the MetroNorth.

Indian Ladder Farm in Altermont, New York. Fijis were currently season.

The lost apple.

Rows and rows of apples. The trees weren't that tall—just about my height.

He was really hungry.

Across the street, we went to their farmers' market where we picked up presents, apple cider and apple cider donuts. Delicious.

After getting a bit lost, we found ourselves in John Boyd Thatcher Park atop the Helderberg Escarpment. You could see all the way to Massacusetts. Seeing the bare walls of the escarpment was amazing.

Heading to the Indian Ladder Trail, which begins with, you've guessed it, steps. Back in the day, they used actual ladders.

From behind one of the several waterfalls we stumbled across.

From the stream's view.

Trees, rocks and waterfall.

Since we missed the 4:33 p.m. train back to New York City, we stopped by Waryas Park in Poughkeepsie to say hello to the Hudson.

Girl, but you are a spread-FIEND!! Loves the spread! :)

Great pictures, Nadia! The one from the escarpment is WOW beautiful. Mad dope.

No glaring writing errors (granted, they were all captions). But I do have been with your "farmer's market." Is there just one farmer at this place? Doesn't he get lonely? Perhaps he should join a "farmers' market"...

Your pictures always make things look beautiful and special. Most of the time I forget that I'm lucky to live where I do. Thanks.

And way to shut Josh up!
