Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
I'm jealous. As much of a fanatical NYC booster as I am, the one thing I miss is being near real mountains. I don't think I fully realized just how lucky I was in that regard until I left Geneva.

PS A 1000 m. elevation gain in 90 min? No reason to feel bad about that; it's actually pretty impressive. And over 5 km that's a pretty steep hike.

PPS, I spent a few weeks backpacking in the northern Cascades many years ago, it was gorgeous and utterly empty - one whole week long hike without a single person.
