Ascent Trip Report

(After sleeping in Tom Jones Shelter with Vito and Amanda...) Met up with Rob and Sal and their kids for a day hike to Jackie Jones Fire Tower and Big Hill shelter for lunch. We passed the Orak ruins along the way. Nice easy hike with rambling hills. Along the trail after the rain we saw dozens of orange salamanders (Eastern (Red-Spotted) Newt) (http://www.dec.ny.gov/animals/67022.html) We heard/saw some woodpeckers, passed a few streams, had nice view from Big Hill Shelter, (Eamonn pointed out NYC) and Fiona worked on her Earth Science packet
