The Ashokan from Overlook

About 7 miles away from us, up into the Catskill State Park, lies the Ashokan Reservoir. Started in 1908 at that time it was the largest man-made reservoir in the world and the main water supply for New York city, 90 miles to the south. Here you can see it from Overlook Mountain, near Woodstock, a great hiking spot about 20 minutes away from us by car.
