I vaguely recall reading about "some rock climbing" a few years ago in my home state, New York. I thought to myself, "I should check that out and do some backpacking sometime", but it hasn't happened to date.
These days, I'm doing my homework. An article from Outside magazine caught my bleary eye this morning at o'dark hundred.
It's about The Gunks. Some super fun climbing!
The Shawangunk range is located near New Paltz, NY.
I'm from Brewster, NY.
That's about an hour away, kids. Additionally, I have an aunt who lives in Poughkeepsie.
Can we say 'There's a dual-purpose trip in the offing?'
I knew you could.
