Weekly Photo Challenge: Between

      This past weekend a couple of friends and I made our first attempt at completing the infamous Pemi Loop. A circuitous hike through the Pemigewasset Wilderness in northern New Hampshire. Between us and the completion of what is considered one of the toughest hikes in the U.S., was 31.5 miles, 8 summits… Read More

Weekly Photo Challenge: Resolved

THIS IS THE YEAR!  I’ve said that before, haven’t I?
