Mt. Philo

Thursday, April 16th, 2009

The little one and I hiked Mt. Philo today. Trail on the way up, road on the way down. Its a steep climb – steeper with 30 pounds of Ava and kid carrier on the back. Rounding the bend on the top to head down a single speed mountain biker was just clearing the top of the road. Disc brakes and a low gear… and a faint ‘Hello’. The road must top out at 18% +. There are places to get a bit of rest… but its work on a bike. About halfway down he bombed by us through a switchback, knobbies humming on the pavement.

Where are the birds and squirrels!

Nebraska Notch

Sunday, May 20th, 2007

Took a quick 4 mile hike with Maya to Nebraska Notch. Explored some beaver ponds and enjoyed the fresh scent of the woods. It rained most of the day Saturday – the woods were filled with the scent of life awakening from its winter slumber.

Vermont snow, finally.

Mt. Mansfield

Sunday, September 24th, 2006

Hiked nearly to the top of Mt. Mansfield this afternoon from Underhill State Park. We were watching some weather moving in and headed down shortly after reaching the alpine area on the west face. We managed to get to the car just as the sun was setting and the rain started falling.
