    We celebrated Fran's 55th birthday by going for a walk from the end of Zealand Road to Lincoln Woods. Passed over four high peaks along the way, not including the one that didn't count, on which we...

    Sounds great, Ralph! We'll be in touch. BTW, I posted a link to the article above.

    Ralph, your pic is in the magazine with Alan, Tony, and Boo. Fran and I are thinking we might try to squeeze that hike in before the dinner on April 5. Looks wonderful!

    Thanks to Alan (Peakbagr) for a great piece in the current Adirondac magazine. This looks like a sweet little hike! You might see some familiar faces in one of the photos. :)

    SW Hunter, Catskills, 2-16-14

    2-3' or more of very soft snow from last week's storm. All the parking areas along Spruceton Road, except Fisherman's, were plowed as of 3pm Sunday. Hiked from end of Spruceton Road to Diamond...

    Before last season I sharpened both mine and my wife's with a hand file. Hers turned out great, but mine were significantly more worn (perhaps due to the additional 100 pounds they carry!), and I...

    Remarkably few notable animal encounters over the years. Naturally lots of chipmunks, squirrels, snakes, and birds.

    On the return from Allen Mtn. a couple years ago I was nearly attacked by a...

    Thanks for such a heartfelt report, Ed. I'm not ashamed to say it brought a tear to my eye...your love of the Whites (and of your pups) is so touching. Glad that Fran and I had a chance meeting with...

    Marcy fits the bill, I think. Although at 14.8 mile RT it might be stretching the moderate appellation. However it's only about 3100 ft. of elevation gain over the 7.4 mile climb. It has nice views...

  19. Catskills: Friday, Balsam Cap, bushwhack from Moonhaw Rd., 2-17-13

    Sunday, Feb. 17

    2-4" of hard, crusty snow at the start. Left snowshoes in the car. Could have bare-booted the first 1000-1200 feet of ascent, but we liked the idea of putting on the microspikes...
  20. Catskills: Big Indian and Eagle via Seager and Pine Hill/West Branch Trails, 2-16-13

    Saturday, Feb. 16

    2" of fresh snow over hard packed base at the start of the hike. We opted for snowshoes, but microspikes would have been fine, if not preferable all the way to the ridge at...
  21. Catskills: Friday, Balsam Cap, 2-17-13

    As we pulled into the parking lot at the end of Moonhaw Road at 8:20, we could see and hear the wind whipping through the trees. If it's like this at 1100', what are we in for up above?

    As Alan said, there is a good HP to Vly. Look for paint blazes on the trees, which the HP follows most of the way. Some of us found microspikes helpful on December 23, but I'm sure you'll want...
