NisN posts have been few and far between. I have been busy at work (& offline) crafting new projects for a book. We’re finishing up this week and I’ll be back in the computer saddle. I’ve also been enjoying the glories of spring spending time outdoors hiking & biking. BS & I started a new blog Day Tripper to document our weekend explorations outside NYC.

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
