I crossed the Hudson River today via the Bear Mountain Bridge. Half way across the bridge marked the 1400 mile marker. I could not find any visual marker but my heart skipped a beat as the bridge bounced because of the traffic.
I took a picture of the Hudson (before hiking down and across it) from a tower on Bear Mountain (attached), visited the Trailside Museum/Zoo (disappointing), and am camped out at Graymoor Spiritual Life Center (they allow hikers to sleep at the picnic shelter at their soccer field). It is not the Hilton but the cost is right (free).
