Lots of great information for an important area. It's hard not to look for Rip Van Winkle and his companions out here.

Thank you BSIHLER! actually it was Washington Irvings stories that made the name "Catskills" Famous, the origin of the name is uncertain though and I am doing further research to get a better idea. Aparrently, in the 1800s, the locals called these hills the Blue Mountains.

Thanks T, The Catskills have thier own alluring charm, I'm glad I was able to express it a little. Now the Rockies on the other hand have quite a charm themselves! I have to go west at LEAST once a year to rejuvinate my spirit.

As far as what ranges are "better" than others...
An oft quote from Alex Lowe applies to mountain ranges as well. It is how much you enjoy them with the time you have; Alex said, "The best climber in the world is the one having the most fun."

Why are the "gunks" a children of these? They arent even part of the Catskills which are part of the Appalachian Plateau, the Gunks are part of the ridge and valley system. Neither are geologically connected. Other than that its a great page!

Hey BNY,

The owner of the Gunks page also owned the Catskill page until I adopted it. He was the one who attached it. You are right they are totally seperate geologically.
