From the Big Hollow trailhead I took the Batavia Kill trail to the Escarpment trail, which is a great little hike. FRom there I headed over to Black Dome and Thomas Cole, then made my way back and took the Black Dome trail back to Big Hollow. It was a cool day for August in the morning, and there was absolutley clear skies. Not too many people out there for a Sunday.
Always a good day in the mountains.
Starting in 10 degree F weather at Black Dome Valley the route over Acra point without snowshoes was knee deep. At the top, for a short time, the wind was blowing fearsomly with only a few feet visibility and you would think it was the remote Artic.
This was my second time on Blackhead, I was always impressed with this area, just a nice place!
