The Slide Mountain Wilderness, encompassing over 47,500 acres, is the largest and most popular wilderness area in the Catskills. Extensive foot trails provide access to the remote interior, often climbing over lofty peaks with spectacular views. Slide Mountain, the tallest peak in all of the Catskills, inspired poet and naturalist John Burroughs to write: "Here the works of man dwindle, in the heart of the southern Catskills." A plaque commemorating both the man and the mountain graces the face of the summit rock, in tribute to Burroughs and his vision.

Good morning, Happy Monday. Everybody is hoping today’s thunderstorms produce some rain because the dry conditions continue. At least the humidity is up and we got some rain early Saturday.

It was a long Saturday at the Lupinefest but at least Save the Pine Bush had there booth there. I was originally thinking of heading out camping but first with the fire ban and the dry conditions I figured I would just hold off until next weekend.

Sunday I was going to finally building the carry box for my solar panel but as I mentioned last night plans changed when the water heater burst in my apartment and started pouring out of the drain pipe. I still will do this but not until after the holiday weekend. It should ride okay in the cardboard box for now.

Early Friday morning I will leave for North Lake Reservoir in the Adirondacks. I have Friday off but I don’t want to drive up there in the dark when I can do it first thing in the morning and still have a chance at getting a good campsite without having to get a camping permit. It looks like it will be a nice weekend.
