his is my hiking / peakbagging page. And what, might you ask is "Peakbagging" and how does it differ from "hiking".
The short answer is that it simply means climbing
a peak or a mountain. But it is most often used by hikers and climbers who endevour to climb certain
lists of peaks, such as all those above a certain elevation in some region. If you follow some of
the accounts below you'll get the idea. And of course "hiking" is just hiking. But seriously, I included that in the title
since quite often I hike to some place interesting and which deserves a place on this web page which doesn't happen to be a peak.
And here's something a little different. There's an area way up north in Labrador that I've
fallen in love with. Unfortunately, the way my life is going at the moment gives me little time to consider going to
such a wild and wonderful place. Let's just say I've put it on the back burner.
It's called the Torngat Mountains and I've put together a web site with as much infomation about this area
as I can gather. Have a loook at this and perhaps you'll fall in love with the place too!
And here are the lists. Peak baggers usually love peak lists. What are peak lists? Lists of peaks
that share some characteristic, such as all the peaks with over 4000' of elevation in a certain area. I am currently
working on several of these lists. These are in reality just a different way to
index my hiking and climbing. Check these links to see how I'm doing.
You may notice that the last two
lists — the Catskill 3500s and the New York 2K Prominence lists — are sparsely populated
with completions. They are both New York State lists and I must confess that as a long resident
of New York (both city and state) I have sorely neglected both the Catskill and Adirondaks in favor of
New Englands peaks. Sorry, as a native New Englander, that's just the road I've followed.
