Tefft Hill Reconnaissance Mission (and Hike)

6 miles; Exeter and Richmond, RI I guess I could have also titled this post “Tefft Hill Mushroom Hunt,” but that quest proved completely fruitless, at least as far as Black Trumpets were concerned. Besides, I mainly wanted to see what the state has been up to under Route 95, and was delighted by what […]

9.4 miles; Sharon & Easton, MA It worked out that I was able to hike today with my new friend that I made last week! We hiked the rest of Moose Hill Sanctuary, then along the shores of a beautiful lake, and then the gorgeous Borderlands State Park. This was another stellar section of the […]

It was lovely. State Park Road is a gravel road off of Escoheag Hill Road. There is a […]

Guided Hike on Preston Preserve

1.2 miles; Preston, CT This was a joint Avalonia Land Conservancy/North Stonington Garden Club hike led by Bruce Fellman to see all the butterflies on this lovely preserve. Hardly a “hike,” but still a wonderful walk. The first thing we were all looking for was Monarch Butterfly caterpillars, and the ones we found were teeny, […]
