Exploring the Catskills

Every northeastern mountain range has its own charm. The Catskills are unique for not actually being true mountains. They’re remnants of an ancient plateau with deep valleys and canyons carved by water over millennia. They hold an incredible amount of rare virgin forest, and boast the title of being the fly fishing capital of America with endless trout streams. This week, a bundled up MaryLiz and I explored a few hikes where we saw giant hemlocks, balsam fir, sugar maple, wild black cherry and white ash. We traversed an ancient meteorite crater and saw perigrine falcons, ravens and a bald eagle. What a beautiful week in the foothills of New York.
