  • Halcott & Sleeping Lion 4-14-2018

    My buddy TBPDPTI and I set out for this adventure around 9:30AM under sunny blue skies and cool, crisp air. We went up Halcott first, putting microspikes on about halfway up the mountain. We more or less followed the stream before heading toward the summit, following some old snowshoe tracks here and there. The traverse over to Sleeping Lion was very nice and went by quickly. Open woods the whole way. We found patches of bare ground but otherwise there was a good 6+ inches of soft snow on the ridge. Snowshoes may have been helpful in spots, but we managed just fine without them. From Sleeping Lion, we plunged back down toward our car on Route 42, finishing up the loop in just under 4 hours. Great day to be out!
    From every mountainside, let freedom ring.
