Happened upon this little ditty of a peak while on a mini hiking stay-cation last April. Began the hike from The AMC campgrounds (at Catfish Pond) where I camped out the night before, headed up the Rattlesnake Swamp Trail to the AT and looped back around. Good way to start the day.
A pleasant November day- air a tad crisp but not too cold- for a peakbaggin'. Stopped en route to the TH for some cider donuts- the breakfast of champs- and summited the mount via the AT with my monthly outing club- 14 of us this trip!
A steamy summer day peak-bag with the Garden State Wilderness Warriors.
Blueberries ripe for the pickin'! Terrace Pond was an MTV springbreak-like scene with all the raucous partiers gettin' their drink and swim on. Observed one intoxicated drunkard loose his liquid lunch. Poor fellow.
A cool, misty May day...but light drizzle was not enough to keep the Garden State Wilderness Warriors away from this Water Gap area delight. Picnicked on delicious cheese, grapes & Goya cookies at the summit...then hit HDJ's in Buttzville on the way home.
Collecting trail data on a blustery November day as part of an internship with the Morris County Park Commission. Summited this badboy on my data collection mission.
A successful ascent to the summit (and the top of the monument steps!) with the Garden State Wilderness Warriors. Lovely fall day, leaves just starting to change.
