Sleepy Hollow II: Return of the Headless Horseman


Our experience at Sleepy Hollow Cemetery could not have been more different than the last time we were there.  Rolling up on Sunday afternoon, it was hard to find a place to park!  Gone were the early morning fog and silence. Instead, tour groups roamed the broad drive up to the cemetery and dotted the hills between headstones.

On the plus side, the headless horseman was there, posing for photos.

The Legend of Sleepy Hollow

The Angels Take Manhattan

Satisfied with our Connecticut venture, we decided to head west for the Hudson River Valley.   Our destination was one I wanted to go to ever since moving to New York - Sleepy Hollow.

It's finally starting to feel like fall here in New York City.  The average daily temperature is dipping into the low 60s, leaves are changing, and apple cider becomes a necessity.  My roommates and I are going leaf peeping next weekend.  Before we go, I wanted to get down my thoughts about the last time we made the trek up to New England, in October 2011.
