A friend and I did a leisurely counter-clockwise loop around the Sewards this past week (7/12-7/15). Basically: Blueberry-Caulkins Brook-Cold River spur-Northville Placid-Ward Brook-Blueberry. At the...

Ha! Now my dilemma is whether to tell the other two guys ahead of time. We ran across something similar in the Ha-De-Ron-Dah a couple of Novembers ago and it was damn cold. At least the water will be...

Dropping packs and Bears

I don't spend much time in the High Peaks during the summer, but this year will be an exception. I am planning a mid-July loop around the Sewards, with side hikes up to the peaks (basically, Coreys...

I paddled the Brook on two trips last year -- both after the Court of Appeals sent the case back down to the trial court. There is no chain across the entrance to the brook and no cameras. The...
