As with the earlier Rockefeller trails 3: bridge over the Pocantico River I’ve taken a picture of the above hydrant before (Rockefeller Trails – Pocantico River Trail). Once again this is the first time I’ve posted a picture of it in color.

As for the picture below I’ve walked past this hydrant many times, and noticed it many times – but I don’t recall ever taking a picture of it.

As with vines on rocks I’m fascinated by old, rusting equipment. If it has stuff growing all of it (as in the first picture) so much the better. I always find it interesting that these hydrants stand alongside nature trails. It’s easy to forget that this was once part of the Rockefeller estate and that the trails I’m walking along were formerly used by his carriages.
