    Today's mittens and abundant ice contrasted strikingly with all my past memories of Hubbard Perkins, made of butterflies, 94 degrees and...snakes shedding skin... ! Still, a very nice place to be. Thank you, Peter. Hopefully Mike's lip wound will be better tomorrow...

    I don't have micro spikes, will I be alright for this hike?

      Sarah, I haven't hike the trail lately. Given this week's warm weather, you'll probably be okay w/o spikes.

    Hate to bail on my fellow Westchester hikers, but a spot opened on a Harriman hike for me and I must go in that direction. The next.

    I suffer from migraines which have prevented committments to hikes etc, but if you will allow me to try to make it, it would do me good.
