Where in the woods am I?

While on assignment this past weekend, I visited a certain Maine island and had the opportunity to check out some amazing trails. Do you recognize the island? Leave your best guesses in the comment section at the bottom of the page. Winner get a high five and a mention in the updated post. And as always, […]

It has gone from sweaters to shorts in about a week. How strange. I guess I shouldn’t complain about the heat and sun. I — along with many other Mainers — have been whining about the unusually cold weather all spring. Isn’t this what we asked for? I will say that 80-degree temps makes hiking a bit […]

Oreo and I drove south recently to hike at a preserve with some great wildlife watching opportunities, and to my surprise, he behaved around all the birds. As it turns out, he’s really only interested in chasing squirrels. Looking at the photos below, do you recognize the trails we explored? Leave your best guesses in […]

I’m back from a week of vacation, and now I’m going through some photos of a recent hike that I’m going to write about this week (and create a video of) for my “1-minute hike” series. I’m not sure how many people have made the effort to travel to this trail, but it’s well worth it. I […]

Where in the woods am I?

Fancy new footbridges!

This week has been crazy busy, but not so busy I couldn’t take a hike. In fact, I’d been planning on this particular hike for several weeks now. And check out all the hiking buddies I had! … OK, so maybe I tagged along for a particular event that had absolutely nothing to do with […]

Where in the woods am I?

At least those who decided to spray paint the beautiful old trees had a sense of humor.

I was pressed for time over the weekend, with all the Easter family festivities, but I did manage to get outside and visit a trail network that I had yet to explore for the “1-minute hike” series. This small trail network is a beautiful spot for walking your dog or just enjoying some peace and […]

Where in the woods am I?

A very cool bridge to rest on and have a trail snack.

I couldn’t have asked for more perfect weather for hiking on Saturday — 60s and sunny, with a refreshing breeze. Derek, Oreo and I took a short drive to check out a trail that we’d never visited before. You’ll likely recognize it if you’ve ever been there. I’m excited to share this trail with readers, […]

A view near the top.

The sun was shining on March 27, but it didn’t feel a thing like spring. The high temperature of the day was in the low 30s. But it was the best day, weather-wise, of the week, so it was time for me to go hiking. After rubbing some Musher’s Secret wax on my dog Oreo’s […]

Oreo and I looking at the view.

Spring is around the corner, but it doesn’t seem to be warming up just yet. In fact, the cold was a bit of a problem on Sunday, when Derek and I planned to go hiking. We originally planned to hike a mountain near Greenville, but the predicted high temperature for the day was 17 degrees […]

I teach Oreo tree climbing.

On Sunday, I played hooky from the Brewer Cabin Fever Reliever to go hiking with Oreo and HB (hiking buddy Derek). I was sad to miss the second day of the show (I had such a great time on Saturday), but the weather warmed up a bit Sunday, and Oreo needed some outdoor playtime. See if […]
