“The World’s Largest Kaleidoscope” at The Emerson Resort & Spa in Mt. Tremper, New York is only a 38-minute drive from Rosendale. My hiking friends and I began by feasting on a sumptuous breakfast. We followed this with a walk around the neighboring area and were then enchanted by the Kaleidoscope show. The views both inside and out were amazing. The town of Phonecia is less than five minutes away from where The Rail Explorers aka Ride The Rails are still available for booking. I’m in!!!
