Stars above the Mountains of Colorado

Stars above the Mountains

“If you’re lost out where the lights are blinding Caught in all, the stars are hiding That’s when something wild calls you home” Had the opportunity to do some snowshoeing in the mountains of Colorado yesterday with some friends (my first time!). After a day hike at over 10,000 feet above sea level, we returned with our gear to get some shots of the stars. … Continue reading Stars above the Mountains

The National Park Service 100th Anniversary and an overnight hike on Mt. Carrigain

A few introductory words… At 30 years old, I’ve had the opportunity to do a bit of traveling in my day. I’ve seen many beautiful places and met some sensational human beings. That being said, I can honestly say that New Hampshire is still one of the most brilliant locations I’ve ever ventured through. A short 3 hour drive north from my mission HQ in … Continue reading The National Park Service 100th Anniversary and an overnight hike on Mt. Carrigain

The Salty Beach Tomatoes

This is actually an invasive species of Rose (Rosa_rugosa) that originates from Asia, but now occupies just about every beach along the coast of the north eastern United States! The rose hips resemble that of small tomatoes, but definitely shouldn’t be eaten!

Tourin’ the Bayou. An ecosystem in danger.

During a recent road trip to New Orleans (yeah, I drove from Massachusetts to New Orleans, I know I’m crazy), my friend Phil and I had the pleasure of taking an Airboat tour of a local bayou about 45 minutes south of NOLA.   On our trip, our captain who is a local cajun who’s family settled the area many generations ago, took us out … Continue reading Tourin’ the Bayou.

Atop Mt. Webster

Went for a beautiful hike up Mt. Webster in Crawford Notch, New Hampshire. It’s one of the lesser known mountains in the presidential range within New Hampshire. It’s not the tallest peak, but the view from the summit is pretty amazing. The trail we took was part of the Appalachian Trail. The small strips you see on the right side of the photo is a … Continue reading Atop Mt. Webster
