Mountain laurel blooming at Lake Mohonk

Mountain laurel (Kalmia latifolia; Ericaceae) photographs from a June trip to Mohonk Mountain House in New Paltz, New York.  If you’ve never heard of Mohonk, please have a peek at my other photos, mainly from winter. Put it in your life list.

Christmas at Mohonk Mountain House

Some snowy photographs to get everyone in the Christmas mood — just click on photo below to jump to full gallery. In case you’re interested, the coating on needles is from rime frost, not hoar frost.  That said, the title of the photograph below is “Hoar house” because it amuses me.

Hoar house. This photograph was taken at the top of the hill next to Skytop, the folly on the top of the mountain.  FYI, the different parts of the hotel were built at different times.  They are always building new things on it.
