Early Morning Hike 9:00 AM Friday October 1 Kaaterskill High Peak

I’ve walked from Ayers rock to Sydney I’ve seen all those majestic sites I’ve beheld the peaks of Mt. McKinley And of Everest in all its might I’ve seen the meandering Nile I’ve walked the great Silk Road I’ve beheld the beautiful Fiji Isle And the tropical Amazon as it flowed Yes, I’ve travelled long cross land and sea, I’ve walked the world a thousand times. Yet even so there’s no place I’d rather be, Than on those Catskill mountain climbs For when you encounter those rolling hills You’ll find that you have lost your breath For it’s been taken by those forests still That alone hold back the hands of death Oh, to walk the land of little rivers And see gurgling mountain streams Will send down your spine prickling shivers And a feeling from your wildest dreams Hi We are looking for hikists for a hike in the Catskills on Friday, October 2.
