An evening pause: Music by Kevin McLeod. When I lived in New York and began back-packing in the 1980s I would always spend Memorial Day weekend somewhere on this trail, generally in the Catskills. I understand well what this man felt at the end of the trail.

    I ,too, spent the 80’s hiking the AT in NC, VA NJ, NY, NH, VT, Maine with my brothers. The Catskills were our escape from Queens, NYC, especially “The Gunks” in New Paltz!
    The Mid Hudson Valley is truly the gem of New York State.
    Having lived in NY, NC, CO, SD and now FL, I truly believe upstate NY is as Teddy Roosevelt declared, “Forever Wild”.
