Mountain Top Historical Society – Hikefest #1 Kaaterskill Falls CANCELLED

October 7, 2023 @ 8:30 am - 12:30 pm

The Hudson River School artists at Kaaterskill Falls with hike leader Robert Titus
Much of the early work done by Hudson River School artists was done at Kaaterskill Falls. It is easy to search for and find exactly where they sketched. This hike will visit many of these sites. It is Dr. Titus’s contention that it was the Ice Age processes of erosion that created the scenic beauty that was painted. Dr. Titus and his wife Johanne are preparing a book about this. This hike will be a preview of that book.
Meet at the Laurel House parking lot at 8:30 AM.
