Catskills vacation: Day 5 (Thursday)

Went on a round-trip scenic train ride through the Catskills, from Arkville, NY to Roxbury, NY. It was about 45 minutes each way Loved it! The first part was the most relaxing part of the entire vacation.

About a 30 minute drive from where I was staying, and of course the scenery was breath-taking the entire way. Was there plenty early, so walked around and took some pictures before they were ready to board.


 Boarding area
And we're off! We followed the river and mountains the whole way. I saw a lot of eagles, hawks and blue herons, but wasn't quick enough to catch any on the camera. I even saw an eagle eating a fish. Pretty cool

 A little bit of fall color was starting to appear

 This is at the Roxbury depot. I love stone walls!


Lots of kids enjoying the day
Love red barns!

It was a beautiful day to go for a ride. A couple told me there are several fun scenic train rides in Massachusetts--I will definitely check it out. I have never been before, but always wanted to go.
