Thunderhart Golf Course remains a favorite golf destination in Greene County. The course is challenging and staff strive to keep the fairways and greens in tip top condition. Staff in the pro shop friendly, welcoming and eager to meet golfer needs. The snack bar and beverage service is reasonably priced and easily accessed, on the run.

I've been going to Zoom Flume for more years than I can remember, and I've always enjoyed it. They've recently added new attractions (zip lines, a big new slide, etc.) and done some really nice upgrades (lots of spiffy new railings, etc.), and safety improvements (scales on the big slides to ensure guests are of the appropriate weight). The part is nestled in the woods with spectacular views of several of the Catskill high peaks. We usually pack our lunches, but for our visit yesterday I bought a Groupon which included lunch, so we had the chicken strips, and I was very pleasantly surprised. The quality of the food was better than most restaurants; certainly WAY better than you might expect from an amusement park.

Nestled in the valley near South Cairo, NY, Mahayana Buddhist Temple has luxurious architecture, and offers peace from your busy, daily life. It is on a complex of at least 6 buildings, all with a different Chinese Buddhist theme.
The Hall of Buddha’s is my favorite so far after several visits, since Mahayana is only 7 miles from my country home. The Hall contains hundreds of Buddha’s in various poses, and this is recommended for some very unusual photography visual spots. There is one building where photography is not allowed, so please respect their wishes. I did not see the sign until it was too late, so out of respect, none of those will be posted on TripAdvisor. My apologies… All buildings contain beautiful and peaceful décor and there are plenty of funny and serious stone statues around the complex. Admission is free. There are donations and many people have left pennies, nickels, dimes on the statues. Please donate what you can. They need to maintain the property and it helps their religious cause.
The road is now paved, and the parking lot can accommodate busses, and parking is centrally located and also paved. Most buildings are wheelchair accessible, and we took my 86 y.o. mom to many locations. The lake is a gravel path, but worth a walk to visit a new memorial overlooking a lovely and peaceful fountain.
I am not Buddhist, but I did study world religions in college, so you don’t have to be a Buddhist to join their tranquility. At several spots I do kneel and hold my palms together close to my heart and pray for peace in the world.
Mahayana is related to another Temple in New York City.
Located near South Cairo, Mahayana is justly peace in the valley.

We were staying in Tannersville and so had to take a short hike to see the Kaaterskill Falls. Towering at 260 feet – that’s 90 feet higher than Niagara Falls at 167 feet – Kaaterskill Falls is the tallest cascading waterfall in New York State. One of the most popular waterfalls in the Catskills, Kaaterskill Falls is a regional natural wonder that has captivated everyone from the daytripper to renowned painters and photographers who have depicted the falls in countless pieces of Catskills art. Hike one mile to the base of the two-tiered waterfall and revel in its incredible beauty. Parking is available on Route 23A just east of Haines Falls, but be wary of traffic on this winding switchback road. This parking was full so we continued down 23A and followed the signs for North/South Lake. We had to pay to get in, but then were able to find additional parking. From here the trail starts across the street from where the map resides and is well marked. We saw the people who took the last spot at the other parking area at the falls, so you can hike to the falls from either location. Hiking Advisory: Alongside its beauty, Kaaterskill falls can be extremely dangerous and has taken the lives of many overzealous hikers over the years.

Thomas Cole (1801-1848) founded the Hudson River School as one of America's premier landscape painters. Cedar Grove, his home in the historic Catskill region, was named a National Historic Site in 1999 and is open to the public today. Visitors can tour the grounds, see rotating exhibitions of Hudson River School art, and learn about the life of Thomas Cole.
The Kiki Smith show is incredible. If you have not seen it, go now. The work is excellent on its own, but in the context of the Thomas Cole house, it raises both his work and hers to a different conversation.
We wanted to do a tour, but they were booked for the afternoon we were there. You can buy tickets on the website but have to do it in advance.
We enjoyed the grounds and the Gifford show in the new studio building until the open visit time which is 2-5.
Plan ahead. get this on your calendar and buy tickets.

Hudson River School painter Frederic E. Church designed Olana, his family home, studio, and estate, as an integrated environment embracing architecture, art, and landscape. Olana, a National Historic Landmark, is an icon of naturalistic landscape design, with five miles of carriage roads and a Persian-inspired house at its summit, embracing unrivaled panoramic views of the vast Hudson River Valley. Today, visitors can experience an array of activities, from meandering through the 250 acre artist designed landscape, to taking a tour of the house and surrounding landscape, to viewing the changing exhibitions both in the main house and a gallery devoted to contemporary photography. They can see a 17 minute award-winning video on the property and a permanent orientation exhibit. They can also participate in a variety of educational programs in the Wagon House Education Center, including a free backpack program that includes a variety of projects for children.
I arrived one day shortly before they were to close, and the very gracious lady at the desk booked me for the next day. I arrived JUST after my tour group had left and she graciously put me in the next tour. Lovely lady.
She also showed me books in the bookstore. I bought one (a different one from the one she recommended, but that doesn't change how charming she is).
You might want to be there around sunset. Mountain height, 'beautiful for situation'.
