Yesterday, I also visited The Portal

Deep Water: Building the Catskill Water System - The definitive film history of the Catskill water system - the Ashokan and Schoharie Reservoirs and the Catskill Aqueduct. Woodstock Film Festival selection hailed as a gem. An award winning production.  Available after 10/23/10:  The Catskill Mountain House and the World Around. http://www.documentaryworld.com
We were at the Full Moon Inn for a wedding and stayed overnight in “Des Alpes” at the Alpine Inn nearby. We also visited the Timber Lake Camp, Shandaken, NY where I had worked “the summer of love” 1968, washing dishes. It was once Camp Allegro in the 1940s. I have walked from there to Phoenicia, NY and back for a pair of sunglasses. Back then we also hiked to the top of North Dome on the left in the “saddle” in Greene County, now part of Westkill Mountain Wilderness Area (West Kill Mtn. on the right) NY State land, limited access from the other side. There be bears! The valley, Mink Hollow, perhaps should have been called Raccoons Hollow or Porcupine Holler. This is the “new lake” or Lower Lake.
