Like the White Mountains and the Adirondacks, the Catskills will always have a special place in my heart. Living in Northeastern Pennsylvania, the Catskills provided me with a place nearby (2.5 hour drive) to get away and experience the mountains. This is where I honed my mountain chops and prepared for bigger adventures.
In addition, I love all of the surrounding hamlets and villages, as this is where my family is from. I can't wait to return one day!
