Shallow Pool Opus 40 Saugerties New York
Hudson Valley

In 1938, Harvey Fite, a sculptor of wood and stone, purchased an abandonded bluestone quarry in a tiny New York hamlet called High Woods. This twelve acre site became his "Opus" - a body of work to leave behind for future generations. He named it Opus 40, expecting to spend 40 years working on it. Three years short of that goal, he died in an accident on the site, but his work lives on.

In the midst of the imposing ramps and plateaus, he placed his sculptures, but eventually, the site itself became a scuplture. It is now operated by a non-profit corporation dedicated to preserving and sharing his passion.

More About USA

The United States is one of the most diverse countries on earth, jam packed full of amazing sights from St. Patrick's cathedral in New York to Mount Hollywood California.The Northeast region is where it all started. Thirteen British colonies fought the American Revolution from here and won their independence in the first successful colonial rebellion in history. Take a look at these rolling hills carpeted with foliage along the Hudson river here, north of New York City.The American south is known for its polite people and slow pace of life. Probably they move slowly because it's so hot. Southerners tend not to trust people from "up north" because they talk too fast. Here's a cemetery in Georgia where you can find graves of soldiers from the Civil War.The West Coast is sort of like another country that exists to make the east coast jealous. California is full of nothing but grizzly old miners digging for gold, a few gangster rappers, and then actors. That is to say, the West Coast functions as the imagination of the US, like a weird little brother who teases everybody then gets famous for making freaky art.The central part of the country is flat farmland all the way over to the Rocky Mountains. Up in the northwest corner you can find creative people in places like Portland and Seattle, along with awesome snowboarding and good beer. Text by Steve Smith.
