My mother's day gift this weekend was an afternoon at the Taconic Peaks Ramble (which I only learned the name of today!) Since college, we have referred to this wonderful spot as "zen gardens" or "Japanese gardens"...an amazing, privately owned property that the owner shares with the public by allowing them to enjoy extensive hiking trails he's made.
We didn't hike much, but rather enjoyed the views (and animals) around the ponds. It was a relaxing afternoon.
Wishing everyone a wonderful and relaxing weekend, too!
