So furst off we climbed up Popolopen Torne. Thank dogness mom's new hiking shoes commed the udder day coz she needed them fur this hike. She got Vasque Scree shoes with STEALTH rubber soles! They be speshull fur slickery rawk climbing.
|Common Spideywoman, show us how those new shoes werk.|
So we get to the top and OMD, there be that cloud hanging ofur the mountain again just like in Furginia.
"Pierre Van Cortlandt, who owned this mountain, said it was named for a pre-Revolutionary War sea captain, Anthony Hogan. This captain was reputed to have a Cyrano de Bergerac type nose. One of his mates, looking at this mount, as they sailed by it, compared it to that of the captain's nose. He said that they looked similar in size. This good-natured joke soon spread, and the name Anthony's Nose stuck to this peak."I just didn't want you all to think I woz really climbing up a nose.
The udder side, to the West, there we woz above the clouds so we could see stuffs. Sorta.
|We is above the cloud.|
|Oh my dog, wot be this?|
|It do be a memorial fur soldiers. I biggify the signs fur you so you can read about it.|
Now, onward and downward to.....Hell Hole!
So after walking along the gorge to where the Popolopen Creek comes out in the Hudson River, we headed fur the Bear Mountain Bridge. Did you efur wonner how that Appalachian Trail gets across the rivers and stuffs? Well I found out how! It goes rite ofur the Hudson River on the Bear Mountain Bridge that we be crossing ofur on and the Appalachian Trail goes part of the way up Anthony's Nose, too! This sign be rite at the toll booths coz cars has to stop and pay green papers to cross the bridge but us pawdestrians duss not has to pay.
