Today I hiked West Kill Mountain, in the Catskills. It was a gorgeous day, 75*, a few wispy clouds, and hardly a breeze. The drive from Ithaca was easy, as far as three hours drives go. Happening upon a group of kids at the Diamond Notch waterfall, I only saw five more people on the hike from top to bottom, and all were amicable. The trail was quite rocky, but the elevation gain was not as bad as described, and the trail was dry, for the most part. Only at the top did the black-flies start to swarm, and even then, they very seldom landed; they seemed to prefer buzzing about. The lookout near the summit was a good 270*, certainly rivaling the view from Mount Wittenberg, which I hiked in 2010 (or so). 1:40 minutes to the top, and hour at the summit, inspecting strange noises of critters, conversing with a convivial chipmunk, and finishing my ration of almonds and cranberries. The return trip took 2 hours, accounting for a long detour at the waterfall for pictures, and a quick bath in the freezing mountain water.
