Day in the Catskills of NY

CatskillsOn the edge of a 50' cliff on Black Dome in the Catskills of New York.

Traveled down to the Catskills to climb Thomas Cole, Black Dome and
Black Head Mountains which I need towards my New England 100 highest
and Northeast 111ers. I dropoped my truck at the exit trailhead and
biked down to the southern trailhead to start my hike over the long
ridge of mountains. It was a 6.3 mile hike that I did from 1pm to
4:30pm. Nice easy hike over the ridge of mountains with a few ledges of
views as you can see from above. The Catskills are weird to hike in
because even at 4,000 feet the vegetation is the same as 2,000 feet and
the rock is mostly shale slabs that are difficult and annoying to hike
on. But.. great weather and a great day
