Bear Mountain, NY August 14, 2012
Bear Mountain is an amazing place to visit in New York and time of year. In the summer you have tons of tourists going to the pool, and in the fall you have TONS of people going to the Oktoberfest (which I personally recommend)! Get there early because it can get packed! It is beautiful in the winter when the lake freezes over, and now that the inn is open I would love to visit on a snowy afternoon. This summer afternoon, we hiked down to the Hudson River to look at the Bear Mountain Bridge, just past the zoo.
