catskill mountains part 1...after hanging out with friends in nyc for a couple of days, we rented a car and all headed up to the catskill mountains for our good friends wedding. a bunch of us took over the mountain brook inn and turned it into a bit of a hippie commune. this might be one of my favorite places i have ever stayed. the owner, gary, has just about the best hospitality i have experienced. he personally delivered homemade corn and berry muffins and fresh fruit in a basket every morning. being out in nature and away from technology was just what i needed. the first day my sister-in-law and i went exploring in the super cute town of andes while our husbands were off practicing with the band for the wedding. i decided not to lug my camera around, but here are a few instagram pics...1, 2, 3, 4.
