Airline Trail, East Hampton to Hebron

9 miles; East Hampton, Colchester, and Hebron, CT Oh, my, what a bad day my friend Stacy and I chose for a hike! Raining and in the mid-30s. Nevertheless, we had a blast. Oh, and also we originally set out to get our first STLC shot for 2017 and never found it. So there was that. […]

6.14 miles; Richmond, RI So I happened to notice that the Rhode Island DEM quiety opened this newly-acquired (2014) 1800-acre property to hiking, and after I spent probably 2 days researching it and looking for maps or tracks, I finally got some tracks from a friend and set off. It’s quite nice, and really very big. I […]
