Hudson Valley | Philipstown, NY
Fall time in Hudson Valley brings out so many interesting colors in the foilage. It's natural to gaze out on a mountain top to see the landscape painted with a mix of autumn colors, but looking up into the tree tops is also a site to see.
Rifugio Pisciadu | Corvara, Italy
This was the first rifugio I stayed in during my hike through the Dolomites. It's nestled in the Alta Badia portion of the mountains. Alta Badia is filled with difficult hiking sections equipped with metal ropes to traverse tricky trails and panoramic views. This definitely set the tone for what would be one of the most challenging multi-day hikes I've done in my life. At the end of the day, rifugios such as this provided a welcome sanctuary to unwind, relax and refuel for the next day's agenda.
