Perfect weather this evening. Sunny, with enough wind to cool off. The Ramapo-Dunderburg Trail goes on top of the Fingerboard Mountain ridge so the steepest part of the walk is up the road from the picnic area. Then, once on the ridge, it is easy going for about a mile to the shelter. The cache was an easy find not far from the shelter. While walking back along the ridge, I met an Appalachian Trail thru-hiker who had hiked all the way from Georgia! That's about 1,300 miles so it is quite an impressive feat. (even if many people do that every year)
- One of the views from the Fingerboard
- Wooden sign pointing to the shelter
- Appalachian Trail wooden sign pointing to such exotic locations as the Lemon Squeezer and Route 17
- The rock that also points to the shelter
- A big rock sitting on some smaller rocks. One of many tripod rocks.
- Round building in the woods. Could be a water tank?
- A USGS benchmark next to the RD trail

you're a loner and tend to show your dark side more than your sensitive side. Stay in the shadows my friend.
