What a day!
    #2600792 - 04/25/04 01:48 PM (12 years, 7 months ago)

So yesturday a friend and I went to "The Gunks".  It's upstate NY a few miles from New Paltz. We decided to hike all day. It was the first time I've been hiking in a LONG time (probably a little less than a year). I thought I was gonna be such a pussy, I smoke and haven't done much cardio at all.

Well - we did Class 4 rock climbing all day. It was the best time ever!!!! Beautiful area, great trails, great company.

Of course now my body is sore... I am sore in spots where I didn't think I even had muscle. LoL.

Oooo and we saw a snake (I've never seen a snake in the wild... I felt like Jeff Corbin).

Haha - I'm so happy - this officially kicked off the summer. Woohooo!!! Plus in the town I bought a really pretty tie dyed skirt. :smile:

Sounds like you had a great time.  I'd like to try something like that sometime myself.  It's good to hear that someone has kicked off summer  Here in new england we're still struggling to get spring going :sun:

My grandma lives in upstate NY, i use to climb and hike in the mountains a lot when i would go on vacation up there. There also use to be this little stream that we'd make little boats and float them down the stream, of course i was young then. But still! To bad she is moving down to Alabama. Oh! Plus there use to be this nice waterfall but seems to be trashed now from people shooting guns. Was always a great time when i went to visit.

Seems you had a sweel time Delyrium. Rock climbing does sound enjoyable. What's the weather like up there right now? I don't pay attention to the weather channel. >_<

Need a back rub for those sores? *wink wink* LOL jp

Peace,
Droz

the weather is alright. it's very weird. one day it can be like 75 degrees and sunny and the next it'll be 45 degrees and raining. right now it's all rainy and stuff - not so nice but when we went upstate it was about 55-60 degrees but the wind was pretty strong.

Yea, I've heard the Shawangunk Range is nice. For an 'easier' day, try the hike up Overlook Mt. It's just outside of Woodstock,about 2.5 mi. hike. There's ruins from an old hotel up there, great views. On a clear day, they say you can see 5 states {not counting any altered ones! :mushroom2: } BTW, dude caught a 10 lb. brown trout  :whoa:in the Esopus Creek near Phoenicia. 4/8/04

:shocked:  ive spent alot of time down in the new paltz area, as my sister has lived there for about 5 years now.

i reccomend next time your in the area go up to Mohonk mountain just oustide of new paltz.  It costs a bit for parking, but you can climb up the most amazing rock scramble, and  at the top there is a beautifull rock face to sit on and look over as far as you can possibly see.  try to get to the top at sunset!!!

http://www.mohonk.com/frameset.htm

mohonk is the hotel steven king writes about in The Shining.  And there is a tower at the very top of the mountain where it is rumored that bob dylan wrote "all along the watchtower".

do the harder rock scramble, its awesome.

yes angry - that's what we did. :smile: it's a great rock scramble - with all those crevases and stuff. we went all over the place.

that hotel is amazing - the main part though - i don't like the add-ons. haha well i can see where dylan might have wrote that because there is that tower at the top ... hm... that's awesome!! :smile:

is the Mt. Tremper hike hard? i'd love to try that - hope ur foot gets better.

I don't have my hiking maps handy. I think there are 2 routes up, couple of hours for the shorter one. {not too difficult }That tower was just restored and opened to the public a year or 2 ago.
