Turkey Mountain, Westchester NY

I’ve been spending a lot of time with family downstate this summer, and having a great time exploring. I hiked Turkey Mountain in Yorktown Heights with my mom.

There were some interesting mushrooms.

An incline on the blue trail brings you to the summit, a beautiful view of the mountains in Westchester.
