Nice Hike, with good view at the top  Sucess!

My family and I hiked to sunfish pond. Had a small snowball fight, ate lunch, then went to 1600 point. It was a nice clear day with a great view. On the way down the other side we stopped and explored some old copper mines. Much fun!

MOC->Sunfish RT  Sucess!

Nice day out, quiet for a weekend on the AT, nice views even with some haze, only saw 2 through hikers and a hand full of section hikers. Sometimes you forget just how nice it is in your own backyard.

Another fine NJ mountain  Sucess!

Went back to finish this one off. Went there the day I did Catfish, but somehow got fooled by a false summit. I had a funny feeling that it wasn't quite the top. When I got back home and looked at some of CharlesD' and RobA' photos I realized that I now had to go back and hit the summit, which I did.

Route Climbed: AT (SOBO) Date Climbed: December 2, 2001  Sucess!

From the journal: Sunday morning was cold and the crimson sunrise didn't bode well for the day's weather. Indeed, after half an hour of milky sun, the sky clouded over and it began to look like snow. A layer of frost on my pack showed that it had gotten down below freezing at some point. Still, we were comfortable in shorts and t-shirts with light jackets. Eleven miles to go today. My knee was hurting something fierce at this point so the early pace was a bit slow. We stopped in at the Mohican Outdoors Center on Catfish Pond to say hello and get some water. It's a lovely hostel catering to thru-hikers and it was definitely the off season there.

My knee seemed to hurt more after prolonged stops, so we pressed on and scaled Mt. Mohican. To the west of the exposed ridge we could easily see the Delaware River flowing in front of the Poconos. To the east a system of lakes and reservoirs shown dully in the filtered sunlight. This is the northern border of the Worthington State Forest and we started to see quite a lot of day-hikers out from the Water Gap. We skirted a startling, high-altitude reservoir and headed through tall, open forest to Sunfish Pond.

Went up after school some ice on Coppermine Trail and DEEP snow on Kaiser Road. Great VIews. Came down in the dark, at least I had my head lamp.
