At a Hartford Hospital silent auction fundraiser, we won a weekend at a large cabin in the New York Berkshires on a beautiful piece of property. We spent a gorgeous September weekend with two other couples, perfect for top-down motoring in my new Z3.

3 The cabin was owned by another doctor at Hartford Hospital that had offered the weekend as part of a fundraiser. The inside was rustic, but definitely well appointed with a huge stone fireplace taking center stage.

5 Saturday we drove out to the Rip Van Winkle Bridge across the Hudson. After parking the cars, we walked halfway across to this panoramic view South down the river.
6 We then visited Olana, the villa of Frederic Church who was one of the major figures in the Hudson River School of landscape painting
