Adirondacks, August 2013 – Part 1

My hikes/trips file does note that we went to Zurich Bog, but I have no further notes or photos from that trip. We did, however, go for a long weekend to the Adirondacks, for our first trip there, and I have copious records of that trip. Yay! We were up in the general High Peaks region, both on the southern and northern sides, and all in all, it was a solid visit.

A short winter break in New York – ’12/’13

My notes got spotty there. For Winter 2012 / 2013, this is all my log says 🙁 “misc new york – letchworth? really haven’t done too much 🙁 did some snowshoeing, two weekends” but hey! Letchworth is super pretty! And winter in Abraham Lincoln Park and Durand Eastman Park really do showcase some of the nice outdoor places here. I’ve got some photos. Join me for a brief stint here?

Shadow Pines – August 15, 2020

Nathan had hurt his ankle a little bit, so I asked Levi if he just wanted to do some geocaching. He agreed, and I decided to just look for a place on the map it seemed like it had a whole bunch of geocaches that we could easily get to and still walk around without needing to expect a “hike”. What I ended up finding was a golf course that is now owned by the town of Penfield, Shadow Pines. It’s entirely undeveloped; that is, it’s just basically been let go from being a golf course and has been minimally

Webster County Park – August 8, 2020

I have a whole new laptop and the world is mine. In trying to clean and streamline my digital life, I’m seeing if I can get back to doing this! We’ll see if I fill in the interim (hahahhaha who knows); I also am playing with a whole new photo pipeline in the last few years. Anyway, in the summer of the corona virus and with a child actually old enough to do stuff with…we’ve been going outside a lot. Here, we did 2.5 miles on the Red Trail, some fireroad, and the Midnight Trail at Webster County Park. Overall

Alaska, the final portion – August, 2012

Winter continues. Levi has been sick for the last several days, which, well, winter, I guess? Oh well. Anyway! Where were we? We’d gotten to Alaska, gone on a spectacular kayak camping trip for a few days, and have now found ourselves back in Seward… We took a train with windows!

Duck Pass to Duck & Pika Lakes – July 13-15, 2012

2012 really was the best summer in many ways. We did so many awesome things! This winter of 2017 is…less awesome. We are, to date, doing fewer things. Oh well. This should get better with time. However, again, five and a half years ago, Joe and Nathan and I drove up to Mammoth to go on a backpacking trip… In which we are somewhere beautiful

Eaton Canyon to Henninger Flats – June 10, 2012

This winter is still a bust, more or less, though it looks like we might be getting a hair of a promise of winter on the horizon later this week? Who knows. Anyway, life proceeds apace. Doing various work here and there, not getting out anything like at the level I’d like, but…oh well. People visiting, putting the house together, and just getting stuff done one day at a time! Not too bad. So…instead, perhaps I can do a bit more of the things I used to do, back when I lived near mountains and good weather. In June 2012

Mt Baden Powell – May 27, 2012

Happy week after Thanksgiving, friends. Some cold virus has taken it upon itself to fell me most thoroughly this week, so sitting here typing this is one of the more energetic things I’ve done this week. Baby steps! Anyway, a horrifyingly long 3.5 years ago I went on a hike for my birthday, and got to meet up with Dan on his trip over the PCT. I’d gone up Baden-Powell a few times before , but that doesn’t make it a less cool hike to go on. We also saw people flying in gliders. It was a beautiful day. (ETA
