Geocaching! 

I’ve been meaning to talk about geocaching for ages now. I credit geocaching for getting me outdoors so much in the first place. I’d always enjoyed hiking, but I think I just needed something else. I’d seen a lot of trails, but trails just don’t get me out of bed and out the door. That’s… Continue reading Geocaching! 

Hike to Apps’ Mill

I woke up today feeling lazy. I could see that it was a beautiful day outside, but I couldn’t get my bum moving out the door. I was chatting with a good friend of mine talking about how nice out it finally is, but that I was so unmotivated… she said: I know I always… Continue reading Hike to Apps’ Mill

Duck… duck… ?

I love ducks! I’ve been tinkering with a different camera lately. It’s been pretty interesting figuring it all out. (For the most part I think I’m just figuring out how to fix the mistakes, but who’s counting!?) I had a very quick stop the other day at Churchill Park in Cambridge and thought I’d share… Continue reading Duck… duck… ?

If you’re ever stuck for something to do in the cold of winter, tubing is a pretty fun family activity! A couple of us hit up the slopes this weekend in Kitchener at Chicopee Tube Park and had a great time. Part of what makes it fun is when the staff gets right into it.… Continue reading Tubing at Chicopee! 

Hike to the Crack

I think this post may just be all about the pictures. In my last post I decided to do something different and I featured each campsite I stayed on in a video. The hike to the Crack was so pretty, I’m not sure pictures or a video would do it justice. And besides, it was… Continue reading Hike to the Crack

Long weekends

I think I’ll be guilty of this this weekend.  Somehow I didn’t notice that this was a long weekend. Once I realized I had some extra time, I checked a few places online for backcountry sites and almost everything is filled right up.  At least the places where I wouldn’t have to drive that far.… Continue reading Long weekends
