Well hello everyone! I guess I took a little 4 month hiatus on this blog; totally unintended, but life happens. Not a lot of big changes have happened since my last post. Here's just a few highlights: Section Hiking the AT in Massachusetts & Vermont For our second vacation of 2018 (we went on a … Continue reading Welcome, 2019!
At 6,288 feet, Mt. Washington is the tallest peak in New England and the second tallest on the Appalachian Trail (about 350 feet shorter than Clingmans Dome in Tennessee). And I think it goes without saying that this was the tallest peak that I’ve summited. And the most rewarding. We started our day very early … Continue reading Hiking Mount Washington
With just over two months to go until our section hike of the southern Vermont portion of the Appalachian Trail/Long Trail, David wanted us to get in a little bit more of a strenuous hike. What I wasn’t prepared for was 12 miles of up and down and over 8 hours hiking. Needless to say, … Continue reading Hiking Killington Mountain

David suggested we go up to Vermont, but considering the hot weather was on its way, I wanted to keep it close to home and not … Continue reading Hiking Mt. Watatic

Greylock

Hiking of course! When David and I were first dating, we would go on a lot of … Continue reading Hiking Wachusett Mountain
After having a child, the holidays and weekend activities (see: Family Time at the Stone Zoo) become so much more fun and involved. We love introducing her to new experiences, and even though I know she won't retain much, it's just a joy to see her taking in her surroundings. Yesterday we attended a BBQ/pool … Continue reading Fourth of July 2018
Before I left work on Friday afternoon, one of my co-workers asked if I wanted two passes to the Stone Zoo. The catch though? They expired on Sunday, July 1st! I, of course, said yes and this ended up being a perfect weekend since David and I had nothing planned. We arrived a little after … Continue reading Family Time at the Stone Zoo
