So this weekend, we knocked off peak #3 in the Catskills - Slide Mountain. It ranks as the highest peak in the Catskills, and was overall a moderately challenging hike. I was definitely feeling the pain, after having gone to a dance party the night before, and mistakenly going to a wine bar after the dance party. Needless to say, I wasn't as well rested, or hydrated, as I should have been. C'est la vie!
The hike went pretty well overall. It was me, my dear husband and a very close friend of ours, who is also in pursuit of joining the Catskills 3500 Club. We set off and managed to hike the 5.4 mile roundtrip hike in 3 hours, ascending 1830 feet in total, to reach the summit at 4180 feet.
Only 36 more hikes to go!
