    I know the weather sucks, but in case someone wants to ride their bike instead of their computer in the next 24 hours, here's a substitute tag shot if the castle location is too close to the cliff, or the path too muddy:

    Don't think you can get your GS through the mud to the castle? :wink:

    Well, I certainly wouldn't go there if the trooper is parked on the two-track eating donuts! But remember, I gave you a back up plan. And the sign just tells you to be careful near the cliffs. Does not say that motor vehicles are forbidden. In fact, the car proves that, right? :wink:

    Still, the castle is pretty cool. Would be worth even walking down the path 100 yards to see it!

    I figured I'd get the tag since it was on my way home:

    FEDERATED CASTLE

    <CENTER>[​IMG] </CENTER>
    A short hike off Route 9W is the Federation Castle. It is located at The Federation Memorial Park in Alpine, N.J. near the New York boarder atop the majestic Palisades Cliffs. Accessible from Route 9W, by way of a foot bridge over the Palisades Interstate Parkway and follow the path for 3 tenths of a mile.

    Thanks Doc!

    Here's the new tag, it's located just North of the previous tag in a hamlet. Another clue:
    Mollie _____ and most of her sons were Tories, but her son John was a loyalist. He was allowed to keep the family ferry operating across the Hudson River to Dobbs Ferry during the Revolution. An action by Mollie _____ during this period illustrates the close interaction of British and patriots in this vicinity.

    Later this afternoon. The place I wanted to tag I couldnt do with a night shot, I have a picture from the day before but it would technically be a file photo so i didn't put it up.

    You could have used a night shot to place the tag, and the file photo to clarify the location. :dunno
