    I was also particularly impressed with the 48 in winter over age 75.

    I wonder how the Catskills are going to do out of this - they got some of the most snow out of this last storm. There are now flood watches for the CATs and I imagine there's going to be massive...

    I've been reading about this too. Seems like the rain is coming to the entire Northeast. Temperatures in the 50s. Will be a slushy mess, especially with the places that got 40" of snow. The ice...

    Hopefully this means we will have a big winter!

    I was very skeptical when I saw this because there have only been around 20 documented cases of a black bobcat.

    History of Mount Willard trail?

    Yesterday I climbed Mt Avalon and Mt Willard.
    The Mt Willard trail almost looks like it was a road of some sort at one point. There are massive concrete culverts in the trail which are way overkill...

    Can you drive to Success Pond?

    Is Success Pond Rd (NH) open and can you get up to Success Pond (or the immediate area near it)?
    There have been some storms lately, so I figured I'd just check first.
    Thanks a lot!

    No sign of flagging or herd trail evidence between the two summits. No sign of human activity whatsoever. Felt really remote and wild.
    Nothing but bears, woods and blueberries!
