First Catskills hike   Sucess!

Coming from the whites and the dacks, these peaks were no slacks. The views weren't the best, but you can't have it all.

#2nd of day  Sucess!

2nd mountain of day some light scrambling. Didn't realize this much elevation gain and loss. As part my 10 mile hike got to climb this one twice.

Wet!  Sucess!

Climbed it with my wife in cold wet weather. Had planned to do Blackhead as well, but ran out of time. Would have been great views if the weather was better.

Nice views on top  Sucess!

This mountain definitely had better views than either Thomas Cole or Black Head.

Great winter hike  Sucess!

Did the Blackhead range with three friends. Great weather, not too much ice. Microspikes were sufficient (barely, at times), and I was glad we had one ice axe to share between us.

Blackhead-Windham hike  Sucess!

Went over the Blackhead range and Windham with two friends. Had called a taxi to pick us up at the end to drive us back to our car, but it left us stranded! Was thankfully able to get a ride from another hiker.

with Thomas Cole and Black Dome  Sucess!

Hiked with Thomas Cole and Blackhead via the Black Dome Range trail from Big Hollow road. Descended down the Batavia Kill trail from Blackhead. Overcast day but it was a great first hike in the Catskills for me.

Did after black head  Sucess!

Fun hike, but the snow was so deep on top, you were walking in the tree tops.

Black Dome  Sucess!

Climbed with Blackhead and Thomas Cole via the Black Dome Range Trail from Big Hollow Road. This part of the Black Dome Range Trail is a beautiful hike through open woods leading to exposed ledges with great views.

from Big Hollow Road  Sucess!

Hit Black Dome, Thomas Cole and Blackhead from Big Hollow road. Descended Blackhead on N. side via Escarpment Trail - very icy, would have used a rope if I had brought one. Lots of fresh snow, kept snowshoes on all day.

Had to have this one right after Blackhead.

Black Dome & Blackhead  Sucess!

Awesome hike - I climbed Blackhead in early 2006 when it was still covered in snow and ice.

part 2 of the day  Sucess!

After I went up Blackhead I went on to Black Dome, and then to Thomas Cole. There is a nice viewpoint by the summit. On my way to Thomas Cole I ran into some guys who camped by the summit the night before, and on my back I ran into this group having this philosophical discussion, which was interesting. I just sat there and listened. A lot of talk about the enneagram, which I never heard of.
