The Rondout Valley: Slideshow 

in the November issue of ChronogramThe 14-foot smiling garden gnome, known affectionately as “Gnome Chomsky,” is a unique attraction located on Route 209 at Kelder's Farm in Kerhonkson. At the valley's core are several farms such as Stone Ridge Orchard and fast growing businesses which include Aroma Thyme Bistro in Ellenville and The Egg's Nest in High Falls. Also, a plan for a continuous rail trail spanning the length of the Rondout Valley is sure to bring waves of new visitors. The photographs below were taken by Kelly Merchant. Some of them did not appear in the print version of the article.
