1014379_10152322785842014_5191159094344136283_nBack in October, as the temps fell, and autumn descended on the Northeast, I piled our family of six into the van and went camping out in the Catskills. I’ve been down that way numerous times over the past year to climb and race and have absolutely fallen in love with the region. But I hadn’t had a chance to share it with my family yet, so I booked a campsite and off we went!

It was a weekend well-spent as we hiked and climbed (Escarpment Trail, Kaaterskills Falls, Diamond Notch Falls), explored little towns (Phoenicia, Woodstock, Tannersville, Hunter) while it rained, enjoyed the cool temps, clear star-filled nights, and roaring fires to keep us warm. Doesn’t get any better than that.

Stay: North/South Lake . Eat: Phoenicia Diner . Climb: Escarpment Trail
