NY Parte Dos

Last week we had a few days of bad weather (at least for aerial photography) so I was able to go out and explore more of New York.  I really wanted to check out the Gunks (Shawangunks), so we headed north and also decided to check out the Catskills (pictures from the Kaaterskill Falls area).  I didn't get any pictures of the Gunks because, one I wasn't climbing and two there were too many trees in the way.   Right on the edge of New Paltz, NY (Gunks) is an awesome brew pub, The Gilded Otter.  We ordered the garden sampler (4 oz samples of the 8 beers they were currently brewing), and they also serve awesome pizza.  The area was spectacular and I can't wait to return with some friends (belayers) and spend some time there.  Check out Shull Photo in the More Media section, this guy has some great photography!
