Six-year old Noel prepares to tackle Hellgate, his first ever black diamond, on Hunter Mountain, Saturday March 12th. (Yes, he fell, but only once, and he bounced right back up. He later completed a flawless run down black diamonds from top to bottom.)
Yours truly on top of Wittenberg Mountain, with the Ashokan Reservoir in the background. The first peak of a three-mountain snowshoe hike, Sunday March 13th.
How much snow do we still have on our mountains? Well, if I tell you that this “Foot Trail” sign is meant to be at head height, you might get an idea. Near the peak of Slide, at 4180′ the tallest of the Catskill Mountains.
