The Hudson River
(Click on photo to enlarge)
This post has nothing to do with gardening and nothing to do with cooking. But I thought you might be interested in the Poughkeepsie Journal’s article dated April 3, 2012.
The headline on the front page, above the fold, of Section B reads:
Hokey Pokey, all for charity
Walkway group seeks 3,000 for world record

The photo of the Hudson River (above) and the photos of The Walkway Over the Hudson (below) were taken by my daughter when she and my son-in-law visited during October, 2011.
There are 2 entrances to the Walkway, the Poughkeepsie (east) entrance and the Highland (west) entrance.
This is the gate at the Poughkeepsie entrance.
The Walkway Over the Hudson soars 212 feet above the Hudson River. At 6,767 feet (1.28 miles) it is the world’s longest, elevated pedestrian bridge. The deck is 24 feet wide with a 4 feet 6 inch railing.
This photo was taken from the east side (Poughkeepsie side) looking west towards Highland
The Walkway flag
The Walkway Over the Hudson was opened to the public on October 3, 2009 at 3:00 p.m. I was on the bridge at 3:30 p.m. and walked the entire length twice – Poughkeepsie to Highland and Highland back to Poughkeepsie.
