My girlfriend and I just went to the Catskills last weekend. Snowy and gorgeous. Our plan was to hike into the Diamond Notch lean to, drop our packs, and hike a loop around to the top of hunter, then sleep at the lean to, and hike out the next day.
It was beautiful, about 1/2 an inch of snow on the ground.
we hike rather slowly, so we erred on the better side of judgement, and turned back before reaching the top of Hunter, as I told Michelle, we're here to hike, not to get to the top of anything. Saturday night it snowed another 1 1/2 inches. We hiked out sunday morning. it was a great weekend.
just thought i'd share.
