[Note: I’m writing this post six months later, so I’m a bit sketchy about the details.]
It was a chilly October. I went to work on Friday all packed up, and headed to the Catskills directly after work. I had reserved a spot at the Phoenicia Black Bear Campground and got there after dark. With my headlamp on, I quickly set up the Hilleberg Unna tent amongst the partying and county/western music sounds from neighboring campsites.
It was a chilly night and got down to around freezing but I was comfortable in the Unna and a Sea to Summit Trek !! 18° bag.
The next morning, I awoke to see that I was right next to Esopus Creek. I had no idea. It was quite a nice sight.
I packed up and headed to the Spruceton DEC parking lot for Hunter Mountain.
