The West Point Foundry Preserve, in the village of Cold Spring, NY, is sited amidst the ruins of a long-defunct iron works that supplied major artillery for the United States government in the nineteenth century. Today, an almost magical woodlands has reclaimed the land, protected from development as an “outdoor museum” by Scenic Hudson. On this, my first visit, I found the transformation of a once bustling, belching, noisy, and polluting armaments manufacturing complex into a scene of pristine natural beauty good medicine for the soul.

Tuesday, September 12, 2017: Down by the Riverside

As I was editing these images, the lyrics from the old Afro-American spiritual, Down by the Riverside, played over and over again in my head:

Gonna lay down my sword and shield
Down by the riverside
Down by the riverside
Down by the riverside
Gonna lay down my sword and shield
Down by the riverside
Ain’t gonna study war no more.
