Hiking to North Point

I'm still trying to catch up on photographing sketches and paintings and getting them posted! It's been hard to get that done on vacation, but it's quickly approaching "Back to Work" time! This watercolor sketch was done on a hike to North Point in the Catskill Mountains. North Point offers 270 degree views facing south, east, and north. This is the south-facing view, which overlooks North South Lake and the old Catskill Mountain House site. We were hoping for better visibility, but it was quite overcast that day. The trail was wet, rocky and slippery almost the entire way. Next time I'll definitely go when the trail is dry, but of course we were rewarded by the fabulous location at the top.
