A View of Our Beautiful Area From Overlook Mountain's Fire Tower

View from Overlook Mountain 03

This view is looking southwest from Overlook Mountain, towards the central Catskill Mountains. As you can see, even though it was in the the winter (New Years Day 2005, to be exact), the atmosphere was unusually hazy. Very pretty, but not good for detailed photographs. Anyway, on the left is the frozen Ashokan Reservoir, with its weir structure dividing the western (right) and eastern (left) halves. The reservoir was constructed between 1907 and 1914 was was considered a major engineering feat at the time. In the foreground is the south shoulder of Overlook Mountain (3140 feet/957 m); beyond it is High Point (3080 feet/938 m).

Faintly visible is the WAMK (90.9 FM) transmitter, a low power repeater for WAMC (Albany Medical College/Northeast Public Radio 90.3 FM).
