At first, it seemed we were early for the best color, but we did find this cute gazebo near the hotel.
We researched attractions in the area and went to see them all. First up was the 1860 Livingston Manor Covered Bridge which was since lovingly restored.
Look at the interesting construction.
With wooden nuts.
Then we paid a visit to the museum and site of the epic Woodstock, which was not in Woodstock, NY, but 50 miles away in Bethel Woods.
Ironically, it's a really elaborate museum to commemorate an outdoor event which was plagued by rain and mud.
Although we were the right age for Woodstock in 1969, neither of us heard about it until it was over. Not that we would have gone, but it just seems funny. Diana and Phil make a good rocker duo.
And here's the actual site where 400,000 people gathered in August, 1969, to listen to music and whatnot.
Our last stop was the beautiful Stone Arch Bridge, built in 1880 by Swiss German immigrants Henry and Philip Hembdt. I couldn't decide which picture to choose, so I'm posting two. What the heck, they're cheap.
Yes, I know, some colored leaves would have been perfect.
Next post, our quest to find those autumn leaves.
