Got up early to try to take advantage of a brief window of dry weather this morning to try to beat the rain moving in for the afternoon. I had to pull off to the side of the road to capture this picture of the early morning sun breaking through a thick wall of clouds and fog. This would be the only sun I would see all day, or for the last five days for that matter.
Today, the old road is now a DEC trail. A small parking lot can be found on the north side of Route 23A in Palenville just east of the Catskill Blue Line. Elevation at the parking area is just over 800 feet.
