Magic Hike

Gertrude’s Nose at Minnewaska State Park, New York. [June 2015]

No, you do no not have to go far to escape New York’s urban bustle. 90 minutes away on a ZipCar we discover tranquility, escapism, and masculinity atop Gertrude’s Nose inside Minnewaska State Park, with breathtaking views of the Catskills. Near-death experiences aside (mind the gaps!) you can’t go wrong with a little hike in Upstate New York on a sunny, cloud-brushed Saturday afternoon.
