Follow me and my friends on our adventures outside.

Holidays in New England

Sloane and I spent Christmas and New Years with the Whelans and some friends from NYC and Beantown.  It was fantastic, we ate and drank plenty, had serious family time, and hiked - a lot.

Rowan at Gaspee point, in Warwick RI.  This dude has so much energy.  If you are a history buff click here.

The whole fam hiked to the top of this hill in Woodstock VT.  It wasn't much of an effort, but had a pretty good view.

Whelan men figuring out where we just hiked to.

Mt. Peg summit

This one was a bit more a work out.  A solo 6 miler up to the top of Moose Mountain in NH on the AT.

Moose Mt. Shelter on the AT.

Hiking the Ottauquechee gorge in Quechee VT.

The Whelan's ski shack

Brendan on his first AT hike.  I am pretty sure we spent more time looking for the blazes than actually hiking - it was quite the adventure.

The view was worth it.

Celebrating the end of a grueling 4.5 miles in ice crusted snow.

First of a 5 course chef Mateo new years meal.  It was all amazing. 

A visit to the raptor center in Quechee VT on New Years day, this is a barn owl, he was awesome.
