The Hudson is arguably one of America’s greatest secrets. At first glance, it’s just another industrial river: tree-lined banks interspersed with farmers’ fields, bridges, docks, factories, chemical plants and brickyards. But look a little deeper – there are sandbars, marshes, waterfalls, lakes, surging rapids and dense forests, with all the animals, birds and fishes that live on and in them: coyotes, bald eagles, black bears, 200 kg Atlantic sturgeon, beavers, deer and even flying squirrels. These are the Adirondacks. The Catskills. Thousands of acres of untamed wilderness that amaze us with each changing season. Native Americans called it Mahicantuck, “the river that flows two ways”. A fitting name for a river that flows both north and south – a river of arrivals and departures, of giving and taking, death and regeneration.
