On the way up Kaaterskill Clove we found this eye in the rock.
No one but us up there. This is South Lake, the beginning of our hike.
Finn is wearing his "I'm not a frickin' deer" vest, as it is hunting season.
At the hotel ruins, we found a giant, deep well.
A perfect spot for a picnic.
It was a long hike and we are tired.
By the way, if you ever want to hike to mountain house ruins, the Overlook Mountain House, is among the most rewarding. It is two peaks south of the Kaaterskill Hotel ruins. Also, you can stay at the only remaining mountain house and experience the incredible luxury these hotels provided over a century ago. It's Mohonk Mountain House.
