West Kill Mountain Winter Hike

On a recent snowy weekend, B and I hiked West Kill peak. It starts on a trail head that we have hiked many times in the past. Notably, it is the trail on which Diamond Notch Falls (see above photo) is located. The peak was mostly socked in. But the scenery along the trail was worth the effort. A windy overnight snowstorm had frosted all of the trees. The snow was not deep enough to warrant snowshoes, but crampons were definitely in order. Here are some snaps-
