Some excellent tent camping just over the NY boarder…
The dogs had a FANTASTIC time — they were truly in their element.
I think Zorro would have preferred a pair of tiny dog snowshoes. After all, he’s really small and the snow is REALLY DEEP.
Sometimes you just need a quick local hike before the real snow comes…
This weekend a number of MetaFilter folks came up to the White Mountains for a lovely time on Welch and Dickey Loop Trail.
Sometimes you just need to take the afternoon off.

And find a secret place to mess around in the water.
Be prepared. Prepared for what? Why, for any old thing…
When you travel out into the unknown as much as we do, it’s wise to know how to get back home. Our digital devices are great for this, but as we learned in Newfoundland, you can’t always depend on the availability of power or a signal. So Alison asked an experienced hiker-friend for advice and she graciously invited us to join a map and compass workshop she was planning with her husband.
We started the morning with some group training and soon moved on to a full day of field work.
