Winter at Olana

In spite of the seventeen degree weather and wind we enjoyed spending time at Olana, the 250 acre Persian style home of Hudson River School Artist Frederic Edwin Church (1826-1900) in the town of Greenport, Columbia County, New York. It was interesting to discover that Olana means "our church on high" in Arabic.
The house has an absolutely spectacular view of the Catskill Mountains and of the Hudson River.
