The weather sucked but we made the trip anyway and I'm glad we did. The museum is O.K. and tries to protray life in the sixties and how the events of that era shaped\affected the future. There was also a good amount of Woodstock Concert bits and pieces such as tickets, old handwritten notes, etc. Many newsreels and films, most of which we've all seen before but nice as an organized on site collection. We drove through snow fluries all the way from Albany to Montecello NY where the precipitation changed over to freezing rain. The entire area around Bethel was a sheet of ice so the pictures we took look a little dreary, I'll bore you with them anyway.
First a picture of a monument overlooking the Festival Site.....
....a couple closeups of the monument.....
And no trip to the site of the Festival so often associated with Love and Peace would be complete without a rainbow, even one taken through the windshield of a Toyota just a couple miles from home.
It felt special to be right there at the site and I'ld love to be able to stroll about a bit on the grounds. We'll definately visit again....during nicer weather.
