Recently on my daughter Deb’s birthday we went for a walk over the Hudson River on the beautiful Walkway Over The Hudson,
(the above photo is from Google, all others are mine)
The walkway is in Poughkeepsie, New York… it was a former railroad bridge built in 1889, the bridge deck stands 212 feet above the river’s surface and is 1.28 miles long, making it the longest, elevated pedestrian bridge in the world. The day we were there was sunny, cloudy, breezy, windy and as you can see still lots of beautiful foliage. Here we go…

down river towards NYC which is approximately 85 miles away…
and another stunning view of the Mid-Hudson Bridge..b
barge coming up river…
After we had lunch and rested for a bit we started back across the bridge..
I want to give honorable mention to 14 year old granddog Chappy who never once slowed down and enjoyed every moment of the bridge walk.
One last look…
This was so much fun and if it were closer than almost 2 hours from where I live I’d walk it more often.
