Ascent Trip Report

Cloudless blue skies, crisp, cold and windy day. The different climate zones from Hudson river to summit were very visible. Hudson valley looked to be in peak of Autumn colors, from 1500' to 3000' in elevation was past peak and the summit over 3000' was bare of leaves. Great trail with many impressive view points along way. Passed only two parties through hike. Big contrast to previous weekend at Indian Head where the parking lots were over full and the trails and lookouts were crowded. This was my 10th 3500' summit.
