Amazing day at Gunks rock climbing

We took a group rock climbing over at Bontiqou Crag on the Mohonk Preserve northern end this weekend.  The weather was perfect September Gunks like weather.  The clouds were puffy and multi colored and the Catskill mountains view was crystal clear.  Oh yeah and one more thing.  Nobody else was at the cliff rock climbing.  Had the place to ourselves.I love rock hopping though the talus field below and the hike in is a good warm up for the day.

Spending just about everyday outside I realize Fall is noticeably creeping forward right now.  The air is a little crisper, the sun comes up later and goes down earlier.

It really won’t be long until the leaves are going to start changing and that famous Gunks fall climbing season will be at hand.
