A quick jaunt up scenic and scrambly Catamount Mountain to test out Andy and Andrea's new boots.

Beautiful November day - a cool wind add some chill, but a trend to completely clear skies meant a strong sun often warmed things up. No ice or snow to speak of, other than a little bit of frost-tipped branches at the very top. The view-filled, scrambly ascent was as enjoyable as ever.

Andy and Andrea's new boots performed well for them - no hot spots or other issues. Although our speed wasn't overly quick, the Catamount trail's short distance meant that we completed the entire ascent and descent in under four hours. Definitely one of the Adirondack's best short hikes.
