Mount Shunnimunk

Went to the mountains this weekend for a visit.  Want to see some pictures?  It was a glorious weekend, did lots of hiking, lots of geocaching, and I am so sore today!  THIS is the NY I know and love.  It is amazing  how few people realize that NY state is so much more then the stupid city!  Sorry, I hate NYC, but love upsate.  This is Mount Shunnimunk (?sp) in the Hudson River Valley.  Great fun, lots of Vitamin D!

I parked the car at 300 ft of elevation, hiked 4 miles to the summit at 1660ft.  Wow, what a climb.  If I hadn't of been carrying my baby boy, it wouldn't have been so bad, but he made that trek up to the summit quite exausting.  I think I drank 3 liters of water, it is a good thing the spring water up there was clean, I didn't bring enough and must have drank two liters of fresh mountain spring water.  It was a risk, but it worked out, I am okay, no giardia (?sp).  Great fun. 

Middle of next month I have a camping trip to WV planned.  This summer is going to be so much fun.  I am planning a trip to Acadia National Park in Maine either May or June, haven't decided yet.  I can't wait!  Mikey and I will probably be in the Hudson River Valley and the Catskills a lot this summer.  Beautiful beautiful beautiful!  ;)b

I love the photo of you holding the baby!! Adorable!
