awesome photography opportunity, there is a fee to hike down and it is not suitable for people with mobility issues. But worth the hike.

What to say about a 19 room "cottage"? This park transports you back to the gilded age of NY/northeastern society, in the US as well as Canada. Where multimillionaires mixed, socialized and "roughed" it. When you tour FDRs place, you learn about his stays as...More
