Beautiful views on Alander Mountain!

View to the north on summit.
Yesterday, the Tuesday Berkshire Hikers climbed Alander Mountain from the Mount Washington State Forest Headquarters on East Street in Mount Washington. A less than two-hour climb on the Alander Mountain Trail brought us past the Alander cabin and up to the summit for these great views. The summit is a long ridge with views to the north, east and south. As you continue south on the South Taconic Trail, you get expansive views to the west of Columbia County (NY) farmland with the Catskills in the distance. We ate lunch while enjoying this breathtaking landscape!


Here we are with a view to the south-west behind us.
The Catskills are in the background to the far right.
