On Saturday we drove up a little bit (about a half hour) to New Croton Dam. It was so beautiful. I have no idea how they built it. There are a lot of trails so we hiked a couple of them (only got lost and ended up on private property once).
Then we ate lunch and still felt like hiking so we headed over to Teatown Lake in search of turtles and frogs (of which we saw neither). We hiked some more and Axel got lots of wiggles out.
All this beauty while only 30 minutes from home and never leaving Westchester County! We also found a second-hand kids store, so of course I had to go in. We got lots of good stuff.
