There is an area in upstate New York in a small town that this mountain resides in. Vroman’s Nose is a relatively well known mountain within New York State so my friend and I planned to check it out.
We stopped at a house that had information on the hike and this wonderful woman came out to answer any and all questions we had. I’m pretty sure she does the flyers and answers questions out of her enjoyment and love of hiking. I love that. Everyone should live their life that way, using their passion to help others and fuel other people’s aspirations.
The hike was absolutely beautiful! This is a very family friendly hike. However there aren’t any railings on the ledges. The hike was relatively short and somewhat difficult.
The view is absolutely amazing. You can see a multitude of mountains, fields and farm houses. My friend and I watched, from the peak, a farmer check out his fields. We could see the stream that runs below and the town far off in the distance.
It was a great day for a hike! Get ready for Spring hiking!
Thanks for coming on this hike with me! I hope you enjoyed and are tying up your hiking shoes to go on a hike as you read!
What is your favorite view to have when you reach the top of a peak?
I encourage you to hike in the rain. Most people always look for the sunny and warm days, but sometimes the best hiking is on the off days.
I ordinarily wouldn’t hike in the rain. When initially planning this hike, my boyfriend and I didn’t anticipate rain (or at least I didn’t) but that day it poured all day long. Even though it was rainy and dark, we went anyway. It was so nice to walk through the warm rain. Plus the escarpment was amazing despite the rain.
Embrace every day no matter what it throws at you. Take chances. Do something you wouldn’t normally do. Take on every challenge, every idea and every dream. You can do that.
I hope you enjoyed!

The Baseball Hall of Fame
Hey everyone! I went on a trip to go see The Baseball Hall of Fame in Cooperstown, New York. I am not a big baseball fan, but I still had a lot of fun in this museum.
I loved how every item in the museum was preserved in the same condition the item was received in. Many of the cleats contained dirt and the jerseys had stains; this gave the items in the museum a much more realistic quality to them.
I especially loved the history aspect. I loved the exhibit on different cultures joining in the phenomenon of the time, which was baseball. My favorite exhibit was probably the one showing the history of women in baseball. There was a video of a woman who got the chance to play professional baseball and gained the respect of others which I found to be very admirable. I also loved how some time ago, women wore dresses to play baseball. I give them even more props for that because they’d get scratched up more than if they got to wear pants. These exhibits were amazing to me because it reminded me that much of what we have today is because of someone who had the courage to try. All I have to say is wow.
Plus, me being the art fanatic that I am, I loved the display of the baseball quote with the photograph underneath it. The connection between the two made the whole display that much better because it was well thought out.
Overall, I had a great day. The town was great and had a unique quality to it; I plan on going back at some point to explore the town more. I knew that I wasn’t a fan of baseball, but went on this trip anyway and had a great time! What have you tried that isn’t normally of interest for you, but you tried anyway and enjoyed? I would love to hear some of your experiences!
