Easiest way to get to Cat Mtn is to take a boat to Janack's Landing and hike from there. It's not all that far really and the trail was really good when I did it, it's part of the CL50.

There is...

Also I think you are right about the Herons. I saw one residing in a small duck pond at a housing development, so they must be running out of real estate.

I've nearly went off the road many times (probably shouldn't admit this) because of red tailed hawks! They are so bright and easy to recognize that they distract me, and of course they hunt almost...

They seem so common now it's almost boring.

This is prudent wherever you are. Store your food as far away from where you sleep as possible.

Same with washing dishes, ect... Just common sense. Also doesn't hurt to do some scent marking...

Hoffman Notch is fantastic, but you have to get a ways in there. It's best if you can do the whole traverse, which if you are alone, can be a challenge.

Just let them dry out and dump them in your trash bag, NBD. This is much easier with a filter than with a French press.

My general experience has been there are far better beaches and swimming in Lows and Lila than Follensby Pond.

I was using very rough numbers.

I never really thought about the fact that people may find the "slab" climbing of Blue to be difficult, but thinking about, it makes sense. For me it was purely...

Well we know that some come into existence via BSA projects. So I wouldn't say all are bad.

Just rare unless you are at a lean to or roadside site. Sometimes motorboat access water sites will...
