A Week Ago today!!!

This is the place I was at a week ago today. It is called "Mohonk Mountain House". It is at the beginning of the foothills of the Catskills Mountain in New York. Jane made reservations for us to eat lunch there last friday. I cannot tell you in words how very beautiful this place is.
We ate lunch outside on picnic tables overlooking the lake. The motel serves it outside in nice weather and it was delicious.
It was a chilly day outside and the wind was blowing quite strong, there were clouds off and on too.
Across from the lake is a pretty good mountain. At the top of the mountain is a tower.
The motel was pretty but very expensive to stay there. Maybe one day when I win the Lottery.
After lunch I decided to climb up to the top of the mountain were the tower was at. Jane and Mom stayed down at the motel to wait on me. I can't believe I was brave enough to try it, but it really wasn't bad. The trail was very good and had a lot of places to sit and look out at the scenery.

When I got to the top of the mountain the wind was blowing about 50 mph. There was a couple up at the top. I asked them to take my picture to prove that I made it up to the top. And then I took pictures of them with their camera.

And here is a picture of the tower!
After I got back down from the mountain, we all went and looked at the beautiful gardens at Mohonk.

The picture below is of Mom and Jane sitting in the garden area.
Mom and I had such a wonderful trip and Jane was the best hostess!!! She showed us such a wonderful time! I know our trip wouldn't been half as fun or interesting without our friend showing us the sights. She helped me out so much with Mom and we both Love her so much!
Thanks Jane!!!

Wow! You go girl! I would have climbed up there, too. What a view!! Those photos are beautiful but I bet it's even better in person. The gardens look really gorgeous and I'm sure you loved them. How nice that you have such a good friend to be your tour guide.
