The New Tag!!!

Not much of a question about the last tag, so,

Here's the New Tag:

This was as close to the Hudson as I could get today.....



Got there via a path that has a little mud mixed with the gravel. No problem with the GS and Tourance tires.

Another clue....



Boy, this is as much fun as endlessly bumping a thread to the top just to see how many "views" one can get. Or endlessly repeating a look at a thread to get the view count up. Probably could pay a teenager to do it for 5 cents a "click"!

see if someone is talking about " * "

A substitute/additional clue....

I know the weather sucks, but in case someone wants to ride their bike instead of their computer in the next 24 hours, here's a substitute tag shot if the castle location is too close to the cliff, or the path too muddy:

Don't think you can get your GS through the mud to the castle?

Well, I certainly wouldn't go there if the trooper is parked on the two-track eating donuts! But remember, I gave you a back up plan. And the sign just tells you to be careful near the cliffs. Does not say that motor vehicles are forbidden. In fact, the car proves that, right?

Still, the castle is pretty cool. Would be worth even walking down the path 100 yards to see it!

Five-O is probably just there to take a property damage damage report- fresh motorcycle tracks in the mud!

I figured I'd get the tag since it was on my way home:


FEDERATED CASTLE


A short hike off Route 9W is the Federation Castle. It is located at The Federation Memorial Park in Alpine, N.J. near the New York boarder atop the majestic Palisades Cliffs. Accessible from Route 9W, by way of a foot bridge over the Palisades Interstate Parkway and follow the path for 3 tenths of a mile.

That's it! Just a few hundred yards South of the State Line Lookout! Nice job, John!

Thanks Doc!

Here's the new tag, it's located just North of the previous tag in a hamlet. Another clue:
Mollie _____ and most of her sons were Tories, but her son John was a loyalist. He was allowed to keep the family ferry operating across the Hudson River to Dobbs Ferry during the Revolution. An action by Mollie _____ during this period illustrates the close interaction of British and patriots in this vicinity.
