Yours truly, standing atop Bonticou Crag in the Mohonk Preserve.When:Sunday, August 8th, from 8am to 12pm

As far as I know, there is no legend of Bonitcou Crag. I just thought it sounded cool. I did decide to Google it though, just in case, and found out there IS a legend of the Manticou Crab.
The two are unrelated.
Bonticou Crag is one of the many, splendid summits in the Mohonk Preserve. It lies in the Shawangunk Mountains at the southern edge of the Catskills.
I didn't bother reading about the Manticou Crab, although it looked pretty small.
Someone had suggested this area to my sister awhile back. We have since been trying to find a day to drive into NY and do the hike. We succeeded this past weekend.
