Narnia?  Sucess!

Slide, buried in deep white, brought to life vivid dreams of a winter wonderland.

Silver and Cold  Sucess!

The path was challenging without snowshoes, yet each step yielded the rewards of a breathtaking winter landscape frozen in time. Fleeting sunshine, tunnels of snowbound evergreens, ice-clad creeks and the delicate imprints of rabbits' feet embued the silent landscape with life and wonder.

Cold, snowshoes  Sucess!

Very cold day. Used snowshoes. Some deep snow near the summit but not really any views. Nonetheless, a memorable solo hike.

Catskill  Sucess!

I decided to pick up the Catskill HP and P2K after visiting my parents for xmas. The trail was a little icy and there weren't many views.

Nice Warm up hike  Sucess!

This was fun to do in the winter given all the snow we had to get through, and it being a short hike. So it took a while but was just a warm up for the next day. Perfect little warm up hike, but it was fogged in at the top.

I Hate Catskill Trails  Sucess!

Maybe I'm just spoiled, but the majority of trails (maintained) that I traveled out West were not so rough (aside from the length and altitude.) These trails out here are closer to 2nd class hiking. I did love the approach from the East, lots of great class 3, and steep, steep sections of trail. Not so great a view from the top. Wittenberg, and the ridge to Cornell was better

While back....  Sucess!

Climbed this when I was a youngin, so don't remember much...expect that it did help start my love for the outdoors.

Slide Mountain  Sucess!

Climbed via the Curtis-Ormsbee Trail from Winnisook. My first time in the Catskills. An easy hike up a Slide's gentle western slope. The summit was fogged in and there was still some early morning rhyme ice trees.

Sheet of ice  Sucess!

I think I'm right about the date. The trail was a solid sheet of ice.

Wittenberg-Cornell-Slide  Sucess!

Amazing views on the trail. The climb up to slide was steep, snowy and icy. Great adventure.

White Christmas  Sucess!

Climbed the easy side Christmas Day 2007. About 3 inches of snow at the base increased to 8 inches on the summit. Clouds above 3500 feet obscured any view. Still a nice day to be hiking and to break out the snowshoes.
