The 21st century Catskill Mountains are not the 19th century Catskill Mountains. When artists like Thomas Cole, Fredric Church, Asher Durant, Suzie Barstow and others set up their easels to paint, they saw a near wilderness with old growth forests. Those old trees are long gone and many of the small villages and hamlets along the Hudson River have grown into small cities. What's left of the wilderness is now well traversed by hikers and tourists.
