Some Pretty Cool Things Happen on the Hudson River in New York- Barge Travels from Albany to NYC

Some Pretty Cool Things Happen on the Hudson River in NY! See the 4000-ton,130-foot steam generator pass under the 135-foot Mid Hudson Bridge enroute to NYC

The Hudson River holds a very special place in my heart.  I live 15 minutes from the Hudson, and during the school year, I get to cross it at least 2 times a day.  Each morning, I get to the see the sleepy river wake as the sun rises over the picturesque Mid Hudson Bridge that connects Highland and Poughkeepsie, and I get to feel the cool breeze whisk by me as I drive home.  I have sailed, kayaked, and swam in the Hudson, brought my students to the river to study the ecosystems, and enjoyed the hikes and views along 315 miles of the estuary.  Seeing boats sail along the river is not something uncommon.  Tonight on the other hand, I got to witness something really amazing. A 130-foot steam generator, the largest object to ever travel down the Hudson River, floated right past me coming just a few calculated feet from the bottom of the Mid Hudson Bridge on its way to NYC.

Visiting Iceland: 10 Days Around The Ring Road

Join me on my 10 day trip around the Ring Road in Iceland. Words alone can not describe the beauty of this dramatic landscape. Here's our itinerary...I literally just returned from a trip to Iceland hours ago. I don’t even know where to start…  Words alone can not describe the dramatic and majestic splendor of the landscape I experienced, in conjunction with the inherent respect and awe for the smallest details of the nature.  I have traveled to 20 countries so far, and Iceland-  by far, is one of the most beautiful and inspirational places I have ever been to.  I traveled with my husband and 5 other close friends around the Ring Road which circles the country.  Albeit only a 10 day journey,  a mere fraction of the lifetime you can spend in Iceland and still not see it all, we got to see and experience such a variety of what the country has to offer.    I know one thing for sure as I try to process what I saw on this amazing trip….  Iceland-  I will see you again soon. Ég mun sjá þig aftur fljótlega….. Here’s our 10 day journey around Iceland, aka Niceland….. (more…)
