A Tour of Cross River Reservoir

As I’ve stated in previous blogs, my farm is not too far from Cross River Reservoir, one of several reservoirs that feed water to New York City.  Betsy Perreten, my stable manager, and I love to go horseback riding along the dirt roads running alongside the reservoir.  I’ve always been fascinated by dams and the water they contain and I often wonder what the area was like before being flooded.  Here’s a bit of info about one such body of water.
