A garden oasis and cultural center overlooking the Hudson River

An Elevated View of Wave Hill

Just ahead of a summer rain, writer/photographer Jim Wright and LightHawk pilot Steve Kent flew up the Hudson River to get some aerial views of Wave Hill.

LightHawk is an international group of volunteer pilots who donate their time to foster conservation efforts. Jim, a trustee with The Nature Conservancy in New Jersey, tells us Wave Hill is just as beautiful from above―even on an overcast morning.

Our great thanks to both Jim and Steve for these stunning views of the landscape.
