Big country in Minnewaska State Park

Just my luck: I find the most scenic country I've yet visited in my three years living on the East Coast, and they don't allow camping.

But that didn't stop us from enjoying a day of mountain biking and swimming at Minnewaska State Park. Located a few hours north of New York City, Minnewaska sits perched atop the dramatic cliffs of the Shawagunk Mountains. This ridgeline not only provided a scenic ride through buttes and boulders, it also gave us a 50-mile view of the surrounding countryside.

They should have called this big country "Maxiwaska."
