We visited Peebles Island State Park for the first time this weekend. This park sits at the point where the Mohawk and Hudson rivers converge near Waterford, NY. Though the island is small, cliffs and some rapids provide some interesting scenery. I carried my tripod along to be able to capture the water at a slow shutter speed, resulting in soft motion blur visible in the close-up waterfall shot. Also, near the park entrance sits a dilapidated factory, which is partly used by NYS and partly sitting in disrepair. While not a large park, Peebles Island is definitely a great place to hike for a couple of hours with a 1.8-mile trail around the perimeter and several internal trails.
