2015-04-26 - Old Croton Aqueduct Walk III - Part IV
The route after Ossining consisted mostly of trail and a continuation of the countless Marsh Marigolds.
We separated from the people who left to go directly to the Croton-Harmon station and continued onward to the New Croton Dam.
My parents were getting quite tired.
The view on our left of the Croton River which feeds into the Hudson was amazing. All the water in the Croton River comes from the New Croton Dam.
It took a while, but we finally reached the dam. It was even more impressive than I remembered.
We met Tom Tarnowsky again at this Dam. He was looking at an eagle’s nest in the distance, waiting for us.
Three people including my parents accepted his generous offer of a ride back to the train station.
The remaining ten of us braved the sidewalk-less streets to get back to the Croton-Harmon Station.
We walked about 21 miles in total.
