Rusting Fire Hydrant. Someone’s left an old woolen mitten on it.

I was down in Westchester County again and decided on another visit to the Rockefeller Preserve – this time walking along the Pocantico River Trail, one of the longer trails in the preserve. As the name implies it follows the Pocantico River and the main feature of this trail is the numerous bridges: some small, some much larger. Perhaps the largest is the three arch bridge. Unfortunately, it’s hard to get a good picture of it because of the trees that, over the years, have grown up around it. Since the undergrowth hasn’t completely grown yet I decided to go right down to the river. It’s a pretty good viewpoint, but even from there you can’t see all of the three arches.

About 15 minutes into the walk you come to this picturesque single arch stone bridge.

I have no idea what this is, but I liked the textures.
