While on vacation we managed to visit Olana, the home of Frederic E. Church, a Hudson River School painter. He built his home on a hilltop overlooking the Hudson River. One of my interests is the painters of the Hudson River School, so this was an enjoyable day for me. The photos below were taken with my cellphone and don't do justice to the views. The good photos are on my wife's camera, which still needs to be downloaded.

|Our home away from home. One night my wife woke me to point out two deer outside our camper. She saw 5 throughout the night grazing in the field we were camped at. One week just wasn't enough!|
