The next destination on my Virtual Hike was Cornwall, New York.
The previous destination on my virtual hike was Wallkill, New York.
The virtual hike from Wallkill was through the Hudson River Valley.
After leaving Wallkill the route was fairly flat as it went down the Hudson River Valley. There were many open fields along the way, but also forested areas.
The route also followed a bike path for part of the way. The Street View did not have pictures for this area, or some of the smaller roads the route followed.
The route also went by an airport, and here you can see one of the shipping companies that utilizes the airport.
The virtual hike finally made it to Cornwall. The town has a population of a bit more than 10,000.
My 5th Great Grandfather Isaac Van Duzer lived there back in the 1700’s. He was married there in 1755 and lived there till his death in 1798.
I don’t know exactly where he lived in Cornwall, but he was know to have owned 1,000 acres there. If I were to actually visit Cornwall I would probably first visit the library which is shown in the picture above. Perhaps they would have some early history of the area.
The next three destinations on my Virtual Hike all have a family connection to the Van Duzer family.
I have been setting shorter distances between destinations for better motivation for my daily walking and so far it has been working. I have been walking more each day and have made good progress on my Virtual Hike. I am still a few stops behind on my posts.
I am still heading south down through, or near, the Hudson River Valley. I have some interesting stops planned along the way including several with family connections. I will even venture into the big city to exactly where one of my ancestors lived.
