I started in our little neighborhood and had a circular route planned.
It was a very cute, very old little neighborhood, but my circular route did not exist and after two dead ends, I decided to head across the street to the park. The park had these awesome ornate gates at the entrance that almost made me feel like I was trespassing...
I followed the path and soon found myself at an overlook. The Hudson River was absolutely breathtaking. Jackpot. I am so glad I stumbled upon this. And so glad I had a camera to capture it.
I finally convinced myself to keep running and I soon realized that this was no ordinary park. This was a park that was build on the grounds of one of the old Vanderbilt mansions. Yep. The first house I came to was the information center and the second is the actual mansion.
|I'm not sure I was completely awake yet...yikes.|
It turns out that the neighborhood we were staying in, across the street included the carriage house and some of the groundskeepers houses. How cool is that?! I kept running and found the Italian gardens and some very pretty scenery. Once again, Jackpot!! What a lucky run!
