Westerly Grills All the Things

5.5 miles; Westerly, RI [This is a post from the distant past. I’ve been poking through the vast number of Draft posts on my site to see if there’s anything that might still be of interest. Thought I’d throw this one into the mix.] Way back in the Before Times, I had planned to lead […]

Tippecansett Trail North

5.25 miles  2.7 mph yes, i just spent the previous post wingeing about my sore legs and my blister and my strained left knee. that does not mean i wasn’t eager to get back out and do it again. this was my first amc meet-up hike, and i had a very nice time. the leader […]

Arcadia—Deep Pond, Dye Hill, & Brushy Brook Trails

5.25 miles   ★★★½ wow, this was a longer hike than my poor tired legs wanted to do today. also, new rule: never, never, hike a new trail without hiking poles. i fell 3 times because the trail was rocky and ledgy and completely obscured by fallen leaves. and my legs were tired. all that said, i […]
