It’s autumn. That means it’s time for visiting locations that provide a great leaf-peeping show. For a great day trip out of Manhattan, check out The Walkway Over The Hudson, located in Poughkeepsie, It’s a quick 1.5 hour drive outside the city.
What was at one time the world’s longest bridge, built in 1888, is now the world’s largest elevated pedestrian bridge. The bridge sits 212 feet above the Hudson river, is 1.28 miles long, and offers fantastic views across the Hudson river and the city.
I showed up a little early for the best of the best in regards to leaf pepping, but was fortunate. The sun was out, with the perfect clouds (puffy cumulus clouds) so I was able to still catch some great photos.
