Biking has been a great solace to me at some of the more trying times in my life. I am so grateful for it.
The path is beautifully paved and maintained. It receives an enormous amount of traffic of all kinds: walkers, joggers, bikers, and skaters.
The river itself is kept quite busy, too.
You can enjoy spectacular views from many different points along the path, which runs about 300 miles from Albany to Buffalo.
In late summer the river begins to grow crowded with lily pads.
Flora and fauna of all kinds inhabit the trail.
Everywhere you look, colorful flowers pose for the camera.
It’s such a delightful sanctuary for me.
In shady areas dew sometimes spots the foliage until the afternoon when it finally evaporates.
Now for Some Early Fall Photos
The chipmunks were out in droves this morning as I biked along the path. I nearly clipped one as it scurried by. Gosh they’re cute.
You know it’s fall in upstate New York when the asters are in full bloom. Fun fact: It’s our state flower.
Some trees wear leafy dresses.
Fall colors make a beautiful backdrop for white birches.
I just can’t get enough of them.
The blue of the Mohawk dazzled me today.
Opportunities for lovely views abound.
