The Taconic Mountains Ramble park was the vision of Carson “Kit” Davidson, who passed away this past Thursday at the age of 92. 

Long before he built a Japanese garden in the shadow of Hubbardton’s Mt. Zion, documentary filmmaker and author Kit Davidson lived with his wife Mickie, a children’s book author, in the heart of Greenwich Village.
