Shayna in Rosendale

September 22nd, 2005

On my way to morocco, around August 10, I stopped in New York for a few days to visit the beautiful Shayna Cohen. She’s currently an intern at the Women’s Studio Workshop in Rosendale, NY, about 2-3 hours north of manhattan. She’s one of 4 6-month interns that are there primarily to work on their own art, but they also get to do lots of chores inside and outside this mini-campus farm-like school. The town is tiny, surrounded by lots of other tiny towns, with some old homes dating back to the 1600’s – way cool. But there are tons of outdoor nature adventures to be had.

We had 2 outdoor adventures – one was tubing down this river, the other was climbing mountains in mohonk preserve. The tubing was super fun – the water was cold at the start, mainly because we just got rained on, but then the sun came out and warmed us right up. Mostly the river was chill, but we had a few rapids that got my adrenaline pumpin’, one of which was too much for shayna and tossed her out. Luckily she survived. Mohonk was much more chill, hiking thru the woods, then climbing rocks to the summit, where we had an amazing view. I LOVE Mountains. Besides the outdoors, We also did lots of chillin’ … saw march of the penguins in rosendale’s only theater, eatin’ sushi in the nearby town, and general tom foolery. Pretty much the most relaxing and possibly the best vacation ever. I wanna go back.
