Ascent Trip Report

A walk / run (geocaching / peakbagging) to High Tor's breath-taking Hudson Valley views, finding 8 of 12 geocaches, climbing up to ridge views along my way and back, re-reaching Central Highway at twilight, the Service Rd (parallel to the Long Path) easily carried me to the Communication Tower and midway to South Mtn, now with headlamp on to light the way with city life and light both distant out and just below north/south to keep me company enjoyed an evening's stroll to finish my day's tramp, after having finally reached the Tors!
