Observations: Newburgh to Poughkeepsie

Northbound on 1st patrol to Troy this year. Flat ass calm in Newburgh Bay. Looking south at Storm King and the northern edge of the Highlands. Bannerman's Castle on the left.

High School rowing teams at Newburgh. Youth and adult rowing is getting more and more popular. There are clubs and teams at a number of locations on the river from NYC to Albany.

Clearing ground at the south end of the Poughkeepsie waterfront. This area was wooded. Now all the trees have been knocked down with heavy machinery. Across the river is a beautiful high ridge above Blue Point preserved by Scenic Hudson. No one seems to want any trees blocking their view.
