  • Giant Ledge Winter Weekend

    A rough weekend for me but I managed to squeeze in a beautiful hike up to Giant Ledge. Not enough time for Panther. Conditions were a lot better as I thought the trail may be a frozen waterfall the whole way. Actually very nice conditions with a decent snow pack, crunchy snow and some softer more recent snow. Wore microspikes the whole way. Afterward met up for a couple of hours at the winter weekend to see some old friends and some new! A really nice day out. Hopefully this week will bring more SNOW!
    Some pics of the day.

    Nice photos, Tony! Sorry we missed you at the WW happy hour. We got back from our hike with just enough time to get ready for dinner. I'm trying to get back to the Catskills more frequently, so maybe our hiking paths will cross again soon.
    Cheers, Debbie

    Lots of new and old faces at the WW gathering, good to see you. I can attest that Deb was at dinner but did not get any thing to eat.

      Always great to see you Jim and the rest of the gang. I'm sure we'll get out soon enough. Hope you saved some food for the Deb Monster!

    Nice to see you for about 2 minutes Tony! And thanks so much for these great photos. We went Sunday and did not get any views, but we did see to it that a bit more snow was added to the trail for you. And perhaps by this time tomorrow a bit more again!

      Thanks Tony. This is what we do right!? It's like someone said... "I don't know what people do for fun if they don't do this!"
