Western part of the Ashokan Res
To avoid heavy traffic and a narrow shoulder with scattered potholes we left NY28 for some back roads that were more hilly, but we were in the Catskills. As our elevation increased, we got this view of the Ashokan reservoir. We continued on rural roads until we were forced back to NY28. The shoulder was much better, but we took an early opportunity to turn on a more quiet road.
