Are you in to art, architecture, museums, nature, or masonry? I think Opus 40 falls in to one or many of these categories.
Opening day is May 22nd, so you have a few days to plan an adventure down the thruway. One man built this whole structure, and it is a truly amazing sight to see. Harvey Fite purchased an abandoned quarry in 1938 and used the rocks to create an extensive sculpture with no mortar, just pressure. You can get lost wandering the grounds or walking through the subterranean passageways, or just in awe of what is before you. There is a small quarryman’s museum and gift shop. You will find many smaller sculptures around the grounds as well, but Opus 40 is truly what you came to see.
This is a great spot for a picnic, but if you want to grab a bite you might want to stop in Kingston, where I experienced a fantastic breakfast at Dolce.
Woodstock is also close, you may want to wonder about and take in the sights, or pop in some interesting shops.
