Wordless Wednesday — Hiking Mount Beacon

by Dagmar Bleasdale on February 21, 2012

On Sunday we drove an hour to try out a new hike. Don said the hike at Mount Beacon would be a 1-mile, easy hike. Ha.

I was wearing the wrong shoes, again, just like on our Breakneck Ridge hike. This wasn’t that hairy, but we climbed Mount Beacon for an hour.

Landon was doing a great job, but I didn’t have much energy because I hadn’t eaten in 1+ days :)

Look how far up were were! We could see the Hudson River, my beloved Cold Spring, and Beacon.

My little mountain goat.

what an amazing view!!! I hope it made the (somewhat uncomfortable) hike worth it :)

Ach was für eine schöne Aussicht!
Ich drücke Dir die Daumen mit dem Juice Cleansing. Ich glaube, dass muss ich auch mal wider machen.
Liebste Grüße,

Wrong shoes and no energy from a juice cleanse? You are a brave, brave woman. ;) It was worth it, though – you captured amazing shots! :)

You are a brave to head out on a hike on that juice cleanse! Looks like a great family get away and fun time for all. Hope your milk chat was fun tonight. Sorry to miss it!

I’m so glad you made it, despite the challenges! The pictures are gorgeous! I thought that first picture was snow. ;)

I’ve done the empty stomach, wrong shoes hikes before… lol. Way to stick it out for the beautiful view!

Happy WW!
