Palisades Cascades

Atop the cliffs two stream s converge,
One meandering on the forest floor,
The other rushing along,
Singing to the trees and creatures of the forest.
The two joining near the cliff’s edge,
Rushing over the precipice,
Rushing to join the thirsty river hundreds of feet below,
The wide Hudson, flowing peacefully to the sea.

Fall foliage 2012 The Palisades New Jersey


The Palisades are a line of 300 to 540 foot high cliffs along the west side of the lower Hudson River in northeastern New Jersey and southern New York. They are among the most dramatic geologic features in the vicinity of New York City, forming a 20 mile long canyon of the Hudson north of George Washington Bridge. Last Saturday, October 27, was a peak foliage day at the Greenbrook Conservancy in the New Jersey part of the Palisades. Unfortunately the weather was overcast and the lighting was not the best, but it did help bring out the spectacular  gold of the forest .

View From the Palisades on Hudson

The Palisades are  a line of  300 to 540 foot high  cliffs along the west side of the lower Hudson River in northeastern New Jersey and southern New York. They  are among the most dramatic geologic features in the vicinity of New York City, forming a 20 mile long canyon of the Hudson north of George Washington Bridge, as well as providing a vista of the skyline. This photo  was taken from the edge of  a cliff  on a bright clear summer morning, and the camera saw the reflection of the bright blue sky on the water, a  reflection which is not apparent to the human eye.
