New York - Montreal Trekkers visit the Walkway over the Hudson & FDR's Home in Hyde Park

Today was a fantastic day for the New York Montreal trekkers! After a hearty breakfast at our hotel (a welcome time to sleep in a bed and shower) we hit the road around 9:00. Our first big stop was to get lunch, which we ate at the famous Walkway Over the Hudson in Poughkeepsie, New York. The walkway, part of the Dutchess County Rail Trail, is an old railroad bridge that has been converted for pedestrian use. It offered breathtaking views of the Hudson Valley and a great photo op. We then rolled on another few miles to the home of President Franklin Delano Roosevelt in Hyde Park. We took a tour of the house before riding the last few miles to camp. Some rain starting in the afternoon put a slight damper on things, but didn't stop us from cooking a delicious meal of quesadillas with refried beans. -Trek Leader Kyle
