Twiglight ride Saturday on D&U

Twilight on the Rails: even the words conjure up those unbelievable lilac and turquoise sunsets, followed by an inky sky with stars so big you almost feel you can touch them. You only get that in the Catskills. On the Delaware & Ulster Railroad, the splendor is complimentary, and it comes scented with wild thyme (and maybe a touch of bovine). The laidback clickety-clack brings on the perfect state of "summertime." Add to the magic the perfectly tuned music, and you are in heaven in the hills — with your special someone.
