    Catskill Photo Quiz (contains large inline photos)

    Remember, we've done the Hundred Highest!

    Actually, most of these are not HH, just C35, so here goes. Numbers precede the photos. They (IMHO) start out easy and get harder.

    RULES: One guess per person per day!

    1.

    2.

    3.

    4.

    5.

    6.

    7.

    8.

    9.

    10.


    Good luck!

    I guess there are not many Catskill hikers on this board!

    Number 10 is Tom Rankin

    I have never hiked in the Cats so I do not have any guesses

    Yes, most of the Catskill hikers have migrated to the Catskill sections of the ADKHighPeaks.com forums. That has offloaded most of the Catskill discussion to that other site, freeing up some bandwidth and disk space on VFTT. But as our New England cousins occasionally hike in the Catskills, Tom was correct to post this thread on both sites to give everyone an opportunity to participate.

    Not very good at these, but I'll join the party Tom:
    1. From summit of Wittenberg
    4. From Westkill firetower
    10. I KNOW I KNOW! It's Tom by a cannister!
    The rest I have no clue!

    1 is correct.
    4 is not Westkill, it does not have a tower.
    10 - Congratulations! Now which canister?

    Any person who climbs just one of the 46 Adirondack high peaks comes down with a curious malady. It's called summit madness. The only known cure is to climb the other 45.

    5 - Yes
    7 - No
    8 - You've already used up your 1 guess per day.
