    Deer Flies in the North Country

    I have found that if I cover my head with a bandanna, they don't bother me, but of course, that isn't so great in hot weather. I have been known to have been chased by them, until I covered my head with a hat of the bandanna.:)

    Merino Wool Base Layer Top for Summer Hiking

    I like merino wool. I bought a couple of Icebreaker shirts when I was in New Zealand. Yes, they are pricey, but now I find that you can get them on sale. I sweat a lot whether it's polypro or wool, but what I like about wool is that it doesn't get clammy like polypro and it doesn't ever get...

    Mt. Tecumseh up the Mt. Tecumseh Trail Thursday, July 12

    After several years of not doing much hiking in the Whites, I went up to Mt. Tecumseh to hike. In the past few years, I have been busy getting a house ready to sell, moving and getting settled. :eek: So, it was high time to get back to the mountains. I had a great day; there was a good breeze...

    Dreams Realized on Washington and Jefferson 3/12/12

    Congratulations! I loved reading your story; I hope that the weather gods smile on you, and that you can finish your last two this weekend. I finished on Mt. Adams. We had to wear crampons from Route 2 to the top. This was a few years ago. We had a small weather window that allowed us to spend...

    The Dolomites

    Beautiful photos. I was with a group of women, traveling through the Dolomites in mid-September, and we encountered the rain and snow that you mentioned, so we didn't get to do the hiking that we had hoped for. This would have been around Sunday, September 18 and Monday, September 19. We were...

    Bay Circuit Trail - new article in AMC Outdoors

    A piece of it passes through Concord, but not on the prettiest trails. Friends of mine did the whole thing in section a few years back, and I walked with them on the last piece.

    Doric Temple off Red Spot trail on Monadnock

    Thanks for all the replies Just read Kerry113's reply. Thanks. I had looked at the link that you sent. All very interesting to consider. To my way of thinking, something named the Doric Temple should have some columns, but unless someone was into carving fluted columns, we probably won't find...
