Today BS and I took a day trip via MetroNorth to the Old Croton Aqueduct Trail. The Aqeduct was completed in 1842 and provided NYC with clean water. Today this aqueduct trail weaves between wealthy persons backyards and nature. Totally loved it! The trail is 26 miles long and we traveled 5. Starting in Dobbs Ferry we passed by the Octagon House and freely romped around the grounds of Lyndhurst Mansion ending our journey in Tarrytown. images via Library of Congress
