Some ledges on the northeast side of the peak provided a nice framed view down over the Beaverkill valley.
One of the reasons I love going off trail exploring....a small, pretty meadow high up between Mongaup's two eastern summits,
Wandered the ledges along Sand Pond's summit ridge and managed to squeak out this sliver of a view to the northwest
The swinging bridge which spans the historic Beaver Kill
Arrived back at the spotted car after 11 miles and 2300 foot of ascent.
I've driven by this dilapidated barn on Barkaboom Road countless times and it always catches my eye. The overcast mid winter conditions seemed to be a perfect fit.
