Day One: Opus 40
As we make our way north through the green picturesque mountain scenery of The Catskills, we’ll stop to explore the amazing artistic spectacle Opus 40 Sculpture Park.
Pioneering artist Henry Flite hand sculpted this magnificent work of art over nearly four decades from the native bluestone in a creative fusion of ancient Mayan and Aztec stonework and local quarrying. He creatively integrated his stonework sculpture with the natural surroundings of forest, grasslands and mountains making these natural wonders a part of his art.
We will spend the morning taking in all this creative artistic and natural atmosphere, wandering and exploring as much as you like or just finding a comfy spot to sit and enjoy.
Hip Woodstock Lunch:
Now onto a place that serves as a symbol for peace, love, art and community, the small town of Woodstock, tucked away at. the foot of the Catskill Mountains.
Take your time to stroll the charming streets, pop into artsy shops and find lunch on your own. The best thing about Woodstock, is that it’s home to Bread Alone where you’ll find the most delicious grilled cheese ever made on the planet!
