I’ve hiked up both mountains numerous times including snowshoeing in winter and it’s a beautiful spot. The ridge behind the col is the various mountains that make up the Devil’s Path, one of the best hikes in the Catskills.
My flickr contact Tyler Sparks caught a lightning bolt hitting the tower of the World Trade Center. We’ve had some intense storms recently and this was caught yesterday.
My flickr contact and fellow Catskills hiker Tyler Sparks caught a magnificent shot on top of Wittenberg Mountain in the Catskills. Note the colors, the multiple lightning strikes, and the rain storm coming down (he said there was snow). Incredible image.
My flickr contact Tyler Sparks was on the same hike we were on yesterday and we must have missed him by an hour. This is a spectacular infrared image of the beaver dam below Pecoy Notch (the col in the background) between Twin and Sugarloaf Mountains in the Catskills. The Devil’s Path hike runs across the skyline of this image.
