The black flies seem to come out around the same time each year, regardless of the weather that year. I think that's because they hatch based on water temperature, which is much more stable than air...

I would say it's "fair" news, not good news yet. The only thing that has happened so far is that someone in Albany is "making a show of paying attention."

As I said upthread "As a taxpayer, I...

Yes, it's always fun to go a different way, for variety.

I can't remember which way you went for the 770. The easiest way is take the trail past Owl Head Lookout almost to the lean to. About 5...

That's a lot of work!

"Green the hard way." Did you seek out the hard way intentionally, or just not know of the easier ways? The terrain in that area is very variable. On all those mountains...

Nice photos! I have about 3" of snow on the ground here in Keene, and more is coming down right now. Hope to get out and play in it later today!

Hammond Pond Wild Forest. What a great area. Go many times and see new things each time!

One of our first times in there we bushwhacked Mile Square Mountain. Totally spectacular. At the...

Many misguided installations have been done. A couple years ago I was searching for the privy at Avalanche Camp. Hiked the "privy trail" for what seemed like forever. (And I don't mind hiking long...

Wow, that's really nice looking work. Those are the kind of steps hikers will use, rather than going around. (I hope the wood is pressure treated, so it will last.)

Who did the work, if I can...

Antifreeze is Ethylene Glycol; that's probably what they used. (Note, very different chemical from Ethanol!)

I like all these ideas. My location is challenging (High Peaks region, north facing...

Agree with the above. I don't hunt, but I hike and bushwhack a lot, all year round.

Much of my travel is in the High Peaks region, which makes it easy. In the High Peaks, there are areas where...

I don't really want to do any desk work on this. Also, there have been changes on the ground; some of the original book is out of date. In a "e" format, people may mistakenly assume that everything...

Taking into account the range of ability is important! I used to be a "middle-of-the-pack" trail runner (9 hour Great Range) and as such, I...

This is interesting. I do not see anything wrong with that stone staircase. Remember, there are many features in the woods, that are not on the trail, and retain 100% of their natural appeal. ...
