The Haunted Hudson Valley

The tourists flock to Horseman country in October, myself included.  Yesterday's itinerary included stops at Washington Irving's historic home "Sunnyside" in Irvington, Sleepy Hollow Cemetery, and The Great Jack-O-Lantern Blaze in Croton-on-Hudson.  Here's a photographic account of the trip:

Wow - That is an amazing series of pics! The jack o'lanterns are always impressive to me, since I can't do more than a traditional face!

Thanks, folks. There are some good YouTube videos, too, of the Blaze that capture its incredible October ambience.
