Browning Woods on Snowshoes

3.32 miles; south kingstown, ri 3 miles of snowshoeing is a lot harder than 3 miles of hiking. i now know this from actual experience, especially since i broke trail on at least half of that distance. can’t say i enjoyed it, exactly, but i am now excited to go on shorter trails that i […]

Snowshoes 2, The Shoe-ening

.87 miles; north stonington, ct so i strapped on my snowshoes and i headed out bravely… into my yard again. i thought it might be prudent to do one more circuit at home before heading out on a trail. today went much better, and i was able to get into a rhythm, which was nice. i […]

My First Snowshoe Attempt

.7 miles; north stonington, ct welp, the “storm of the century” didn’t really materialize, or at least us elderly veterans of the blizzard of ’78 weren’t impressed. but it was still a lot of snow compared to what we have had so far this year, and it kept me inside for a few days. that’s the […]

7.13 miles; charlestown, ri today was a usual suspects hike—and fidget, who i guess is now one of the usual suspects. it was a nice, if cold day, with lots of sun. we saw noone else on the whole trail. we did it as a car spot to skip the road walking, just because we could. […]

Green Fall Gorge

Green Fall Gorge

3.7 miles; voluntown, ct this was a nice short, local hike, since, as usual, i have a zillion things to do today. the gorge was surprisingly ice-free. the green fall river was chugging along nicely, though, making the river crossing “interesting.” in fact, the only major ice i encountered was at the base of the […]
