A Thought…

No man ever steps in the same river twice, for it’s not the same river and he’s not the same man.

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

View from Overlook Mountain 07

This view is looking east towards the Hudson River, but is mostly blocked by the rest of the summit of Overlook Mountain. One characteristic of the Catskills is that its mountains often have fairly flat tops; this is due to their being the remnants of a plateau (a "dissected plateau" in geological terms) that began as a fairly flat delta coming off the Taconic Mountains to the east (see Geology of the Catskills for more information). Visible through the trees is the forest ranger's cabin (now occasionally open as a museum), shed, and working outhouse. In the foreground is a fireplace for visitors to cook on. Several picnic tables are not shown in this photograph.
