(Return to) South Beacon Mountain and Scofield Ridge, Dutchess County, NY

I led three friends on a hike, and selected to repeat my solo hike from May 9, 2010.

I took very few photos, as I had photographed the trails before and I was focusing on leading the hike. Two of my friends were taking their own photos, so they have keepsakes from the hike. I only have four photos to share.

At the top of the incline railway, I took a series of shots that I stitched into a panoramic view of Beacon and the Hudson River:

On the first hike, I had remembered another wrecked vehicle in addition to the ones appearing on that webpage. I thought I had taken photos of it but they weren’t in my camera. I rectified that on the second visit. Can you identify this car?

Here’s a closeup. Does that help?

Give up?

It’s a Volkswagen 1600 “square back.” I’m not sure what model year. They were introduced in 1962 but not sold in the U.S. until the 1966 model. They were made until 1973.
One of my friends snapped a photo of me acting silly:
