Ascent Trip Report

After the early morning fishing turned up not even a nibble, we salvaged the morning after the boys' first camping trip with a short hike. I couldn't convince anyone to do the 3.5 mile round trip, so instead we drove up to the Monument parking lot on top of the ridge. We wandered up the trail for the remainder of the ascent looking out at NJ, PA and NY vistas. V and I tried to take the boys up to the top of the monument, but their fascination with the interior of the tower waned about a flight and a half of stairs up. So as Sammy and Yoni played with the bumble bees and Kole started to melt down, we went back to the campsite at Sawmill Lake to break camp and head home.
