Drove out to Troy this afternoon after work to visit a couple of local natural landmarks. The first is Mount Ida Cemetery, located in South Troy near Pawling Avenue. At the back of the cemetery, there are informal footpaths leading down to Belden Pond and the Poesten Kill.
Headed over to the historically significant Oakwood Cemetery on the north side of Troy after leaving Mt Ida. This cemetery, sitting on a hill over Lansinburgh, is truly a treasure. Established in 1849, it is one of the oldest and largest rural cemeteries in the country.
Perhaps a cemetery seems an odd place for a walk, but this is a truly special place with much to offer.
