Where Is "The Hudson Valley?"

My "backyard" in Orange County, NY is a rather amazing plethora of scenic views with an ever changing palate of colors and hues. On any given day there is something to admire and snag a photo of.
Living in the Hudson Valley allows me to grab great photos, and be in an area that many are a bit confused about. "The Hudson Valley" is a region of eleven counties along the Hudson River. It encompasses three regions; the Lower Hudson Valley, The Mid- Hudson Valley, and The Upper Hudson Valley. My map shows the six counties that are within a commutable distance to NYC.
This is a rather large area and crosses quite a few counties. Not all of the locations are all that close to the water either. The one thing they all have in common is that the area is quite beautiful. All three have some great places to live.
It does seem rather confusing to anyone that is unfamiliar with this region of New York. To add more to the confusion, New York is home to a town called Hudson, in Columbia County. It is actually quite far from the water. Hudson, is not all that big, but with the name that is the same as the entire area, the region and the town can be mistaken for each other. Google hasn't quite decided what to show on their results page yet. Semantic searches will get better over time, and the results pages will show more info that highlights the Hudson Valley as a region.
