Distractions Along The Way.

Are We There Yet? Last Saturday my good friend Suzanne (aka Chubby Hiker Chick) and I set out to visit Bridal Veil Falls in the Franconia Notch area of New Hampshire’s White Mountains. The hike was an easy 2.5 mile out and back with a modest elevation gain of only 1100′. The weather was perfect,… Read More

Wonderland, Mountains in White

There’s no better time to be in the mountains than in the winter when everything is blanketed in newly fallen snow. This view from near the summit of Hancock North Peak, one of New Hampshire’s 4,000 footers, is one of many spectacular views to be had in the White Mountain National Forest. Along for the… Read More

Weekly Photo Challenge: Contrast

 Seasons Change Windswept and frigid. Lonely, beautiful in frozen solitude with just one other sharing the alpine majesty. Only the winter wind breaks the silence.   Clouds fill the sky over sun warmed summits. Trails come alive with mountain adventurers. Seasons change, the mountains remain.    

Seek The Peak

Seek The Peak is an annual Hike-A-Thon fundraiser for the non-profit weather research facility located atop the tallest peak in the northeast, and home to the “Worlds Worst Weather.” The highest surface wind speed recorded by man,… Read More

Weekly Photo Challenge: Threshold

Good times in Tuckerman Ravine. There is a very high threshold that would need to be met when it comes to weather I’d consider too extreme to venture out with my camera. Though honestly, if I think there’s a photograph to be made I don’t think there is weather too extreme. And even when the weather… Read More

Weekly Photo Challenge: Good Morning!

Yes it was! Many of you who read my blog regularly know how I often enjoy spending my mornings. The morning usually starts out with a pre-dawn hike, often several miles through the still dark mountains,  just as often alone, racing the rising sun in search of a spectacular view.  This past Sunday was no… Read More

Weekly Photo Challenge: Carefree

Footloose and fancy free, without a care in the world. Most people know, or at least assume, I’m a pretty serious guy when it comes to my photography. That is until they look at my feet. It’s pretty hard to take life too seriously while wearing my Fivefingers. I run in them, I have them… Read More
