13th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Travel
The John Burroughs Nature Sanctuary

The John Burroughs Nature Sanctuary is a pristine and rugged 200 acre oasis set in the Mid-Hudson River Valley. It is where literary naturalist John Burroughs built his rustic cabin retreat Slabsides in 1895. There is a four and a half mile network of trails, and this shot captures trail directions posted to a tree.
