Weekly Photo Challenge: Atop

This is Minnewaska State Park in the Shawangunk Mountains of New York. It rises more than 2,000 feet above sea level. The park features numerous waterfalls, three crystalline sky lakes, dense hardwood forests, incising sheer cliffs and ledges opening to beautiful views, clear streams, 35 miles of carriage roads and 50 miles of footpaths. Atop the mountain.

  1. Wow, Lisa! It makes me think of “On a Clear Day You Can See Forever. . .” sung sweetly by Barbara Streisand.
    The final pictures shot looking at the length of the river makes me think the river goes on “forever.” This was a special post, Lisa.

  2. I like the picture of your husband. He looks so little compared to his surroundings. Perhaps that’s the way we should feel when we are on top.

    I always love your pictures, they have meaning.

    • Thanks so much Bridget I am glad you feel that way about my photos. I love what you said- standing there looking out we realize how small we are compared to the world around us

  3. That last picture reminded me so much of the many mountaintop lakes along the Appalachian Trail in Maine. Makes you feel like a better person just being atop those mountains doesn’t it?
