Teatown Lake Reservation is one of my favorite places: to walk the dog; hike around myself and just sit and watch the world go by. It’s quite large: 1,000 acres including the 41-acre Teatown Lake, 7-acre Shadow Lake and 9-acre Vernay Lake, streams, waterfalls, hardwood swamps, mixed forests, meadowns, hemlock forests and laurel groves. There are a number of trails so you don’t have to repeat yourself too much. One of the easier walks is around the lake. It’s flat and takes between 45 and one hour depending on how fast you walk. It was on one of the walks around the lake that I came across this tree overhanging the lake itself.
