West Rock Ridge SP

1.7 miles; Bethany and New Haven, CT My old hiking pal Stacy made a visit up from Florida, and we attempted to hike the length of the Regicides Trail, but only got as far as, uh, the junction with the Quinnipiac, the Regicides, and the Sanford Feeder Trail. It was raining, and the going was […]

Providence Lovecraft Walk

Providence Lovecraft Walk

3.37 miles; Providence, RI Today I revisited the Lovecraft walk I did a few years ago with my friend Jenn. It was a great day and we saw lots of interesting stuff. I’ve been a Lovecraft fan since the days when I lived on Providence’s East Side. I used to pass the Providence Atheneaum often. […]

NEMBA's Burlingame

They are really lovely trails, and well marked. We also saw a mysterious structure at North Camp on Wachaug Pond [Ed. Note: […]

TriTown Forest Preserve

2 miles; Preston, Griswold, and North Stonington, CT Today was a garden club hike on a lovely day, led by a member of Avalonia (there is some overlap between members of my garden club and members of Avalonia) and a very knowledgeable guide, who was able to identify bird calls and plants. Plus, I got […]
