Exploring Storm King State Park

Another weekend, another adventure as this was one of my favorite spots to discover so far. As you may of been following along already, but I have been trying to explore a new spot every weekend to take some pictures as well. Last weekend was a bit tough as the east coast was getting slammed with rain. Luckily for me, the forecast was just right yesterday in order to have another early wake up call.

Storm King State Park was this weekend’s destination and it did not disappoint. Although I didn’t hike, my car sure did as it took a windy uphill climb to get to the perfect spot to take some pictures The drive from my house to Storm King Highway took about 45 minutes, but it was definitely a scenic drive.

My top two favorite things about the trip was passing West Point which is right next to the park and the views from atop of the highway. At the top of the highway, there was a small section to pull over and enjoy the breathtaking views of the Hudson River. The journey up to the spot was both fun and gave me anxiety. It was fun because I enjoy windy roads, but it gave me anxiety because it was tight with a steep uphill climb.

Please view some of the pictures that I was able to capture below. If you are interested in seeing more, you can find a full portfolio on our site if you click here.

Amazing views, right? Upstate New York is truly a special place to explore as their are endless amounts of opportunities to find new, beautiful spots.

I have found a love for the Hudson River when the city is not surrounding it. New York City does make the Hudson River famous, but travel upstate to find the best views of the large river.

Heading over to the Storm King Highway is something that I highly recommend. If you are lucky, you can snag the lone spot and chill there all day. The views are best either when the sun is rising or when the sun is setting.

Have a great weekend!
