This was another hot July day. I had the privilege of hiking with Jacob Baldinger, and friend from my youth who I'd go hiking with fairly frequently.

Unfortunately, I had left my camera SD card in my computer, and only noticed after the hike was complete. All my photos on this hike are lost. I just have a few that I snapped from my cell phone and photos that Jacob sent me.

We parked on Lake Kanawauke Road at the Ramapo Dunderberg Trail, and took the Ramapo Dunderberg Trail up to the Black Rock View. We continued along the ridge, with a great bounty of blueberries along the sunny area, and then descended the mountain on the Dunning Trail. We took the Dunning Trail to the White Bar Trail to the trailhead parking area on Lake Kanawauke Road, where we had our second car.
