Hudson River School? Any thoughts would be much appreciated. Thank you so much for your time.

I would be reluctant to attribute this painting to the Hudson River School.  Rather it suggests a California theme.  I can only see a very small picture of a full frame, so the signature is impossible for me to make out.  I suggest you consult a local dealer or gallery owner who may also be able to give you advice on repairing the frame.  The painting looks in good shape.  

Best of luck,

Fine Art
