    I didn't stay at a Holiday Inn last night and I'm not an arborist. Do evergreens make much of a transition? Much of the upper crossings are in an area of spruce and fir with maples and birch along...

    Small streams and brooks will change quickly, down and up. Have a back-up and look at the weather for the rest of the week. Anything high today is likely going to be normal or low if little or no...

    He's been a class act for a long time. If I had a heart, I'd almost feel bad for referencing the brand by one of its nicknames. I may have to buy a fleece top, on clearance somewhere.....:D

    I didn't know her but feel like I should have. Looking at her peak list, several of her obscure (or not on lists) peaks I've done. (Moxham, Balm of Gilead, Vanderwhacker, Belfry, Noonmark, Peaked,...

    Hopefully they pay some costs also, however, stupidity is not a crime. They were not too difficult to find, and the weather was nice. Hopefully they will pay the fine themselves and not ask their...

    You likely wouldn't want to be there in weather conditions that might bring solitude. Since it does get a fair (whatever that means) amount of full moon hiking even good weather nights, even that...

    There's room for both, don't give up your best blueberry hike or Mountain Laurel, (in bloom) hike, etc. In my case hidden CT hikes will still be in CT, therefore, I don't expect folks near the...

    Having done Kephart and Leconte during Tropical Storm Dennis, I understand the idea of hiking in poor weather to fit into the schedule.

    If I want to skip the road, walk, how early on Saturday 10/1 do you think I have to arrive at the HPIC? This time I likely will be solo so arriving at 6:00 should be easy as opposed to trying to...
