New Yorkers, known for their incessant bustling and overtime-working hustling, are sometimes the last people you’d expect to be nature lovers. If you’re one of those people who believes that the concrete jungle has nothing to offer outside of 24-7 working mixed with partying; think again. The Catskill Mountains aren’t all that far from the city. Two hours north of the city officially lies some of the most gorgeous scenery I have ever witnessed.
Your next travel mission:
The Catskill Mountains of upstate New York during the fall. Preferably October. Go camping. Go hiking. Go fishing. Explore. Go for long, windy drives with nothing but some coffee and a camera. I had the most beautiful weekend up there this past weekend and you haven’t lived until you see everything I just saw.
