Although the temperature was in the mid 30's to start, the past few days have been very winter like, leaving behind pockets of ice.

Spencers Ledge and Big Rosy Bone Knob(Catskills)
My buddy Jim and I have wanted to hike Big Rosy Bone Knob for a while, due to its...well...odd name.. and because we couldn't find much info on the peak, meaning not a lot of folks have climbed it(relatively speaking). To make it more interesting, we planned on bushwhacking up to Spencers Ledge from below the ledges before continuing over to Big Rosy Bone Knob forming a large loop. We drove to the end of Trails End Road, which climbs up to nearly 1800 feet at a parking area near the Long Path.
Neighboring 3015 foot Little Rocky's long ridge stands impressively to the east.
As we enjoyed the vista, it began to snow lightly before picking up in intensity for a few minutes. Flurries can be seen over the valley floor in this photo from the ledge.
