Catskills 2009

My brother and I drove up to the Catskills for a dayhike, starting at the Prediger Road Trailhead (the eastern start point of the Devils Path). We headed uphill to Jimmy Dolan Notch, then turned right on the Devils Path and climbed both peaks of Twin Mountain. After enjoying the excellent views from there, we headed back to the notch and then climbed Indian Head Mountain. After more excellent views we headed down to the Devils Kitchen area. Then we headed back to the car at the trailhead. We hiked 8.3 miles and climbed about 2500 feet.

Kayaking on the Great South Bay, NY

My brother and I decided to take a twilight paddle across the Great South Bay, from Jones Beach Island to Massapequa. We started in the early evening, and paddled into the night, on a calm evening with little wind and a slack tide.  We saw a beautiful sunset and enjoyed the wildlife of the Great South Bay.
