40 years ago today: I passed two more attractive ponds as I traversed those ridges for five-and-a-half miles, but toward the end I was growing weary of all the climbs and descents. I was relieved when the Appalachian Trail came out at Little Wilson Falls, which were rather spectacular.

40 years ago today: The Appalachian Trail left the road and entered the woods, soon reemerging at the shore of another beautiful mountain pond. Next, it followed a very rugged course with numerous ups and downs along some slate ridges. The dark green spruce and fir frequently gave way to terraced stretches of naked gray slate.

In every walk with nature one receives far more than he seeks John Muir

Schne Trails, Gipfelkreuz und wunderbare Aussicht, dazu 2 neue Gipfel...


Clocked 4.14-miles today in Wildcat Canyon (East Bay Regional Park system) with Tom today. 1,065-foot elevation gain. Beautiful cool day, sun came out near the end of our 90-minute & we could feel the difference in air temperature immediately!

40 years ago today: I became briefly lost while returning down the side trail from Moxie Bald to the AT. I spent more than a half-hour crashing stubbornly around through the dense shrub growth before having the sense to return to the fire tower, which was visible from any point along the crest, and try again.

The great thing about disagreements on a trail is, I dont have to police them. I just pick up my pace and keep a blissful distance between us.

Something magical happens: can you really take kids on a 630-mile hike

Nutmeg's nap, Beaver Pond, White Memorial Foundation, Morris, Connecticut. August 1, 2023, 3:25 PM. Hiking with my brother Mike. His girl Nutmeg, still going strong at 13, finds a shady spot for a nap.

40 years ago today: The climb up Pleasant Pond Mountain from the shelter was the worst section of trail I had hiked in a while, but nothing could bring me down today. I just plugged on up and took the side trail to the open summit and a sort of roaming 360-degree view.

40 years ago today: From the bank, it all looked so peaceful. Golden sun-drops swirled innocently over foam-flecked blue and soft breezes stirred the pines. The initial fifteen or twenty yards to the gravel bar was almost anticlimactic. The current was strong, but the water was barely ankle-deep.

Shredded clouds, New Britain Reservoir, Wolcott, Connecticut. July 6, 2018, 7:27 PM. It's a bit breezy at ground level, but higher in the atmosphere winds are shredding these clouds apart.

40 years ago today: A quarter-mile side trail connects Pierce Pond Lean-to with Carrying Place Camps, a privately-run operation offering meals and lodging in rustic cabins to hunters, fishermen and hikers. Note: In northern New England terminology, A cabin is called a camp. Thus, the name means Carrying Place Cabins.

40 years ago today: The AT followed the Arnold Trail for almost two miles. It crossed a flat, very boggy area surrounding the inlet stream for Middle Carry Pond but stayed well to the north and out of sight of the pond itself.

Something I would never have done in the Houston area:

I've marked some I want to get out and try to . I even got some of the Xero Shoes Scrambler Mids on the way to facilitate it. ()

It's been decades since I did any , but I'd love to get into it here.

Northbound on the Etobicoke Creek Trail, just before the ascent to the airport. The frost has clearly hit the ivy vines, and fall is on it's way.

I took these today. Love these trails where the branches overhang. So peaceful.

40 years ago today: The Appalachian Trail climbed a very steep half-mile to the summit of the South Horn, one of a pair of open, rocky crags rising above the north shore of the pond (as you might guess, the other is called North Horn). Angry winds were shrieking past South Horns summit, and the haze was intensifying.

40 years ago today: After the P.O., I stopped at the Stratton Diner for what could very well be my final two cheeseburgers on the Appalachian Trail, some french fries, a coke, and some ice cream. My thumb was out as I walked the outskirts of the village. A few cars passed, but none stopped.

Hiked up to a ridge today and enjoyed fantastic views of two mountain ranges and a valley between! One of the in this pic is one that I rode to in a previous trip by horseback. So many great memories here!

40 years ago today: I really wanted to hike the thirteen tough miles over four major summits today and make it to the Post Office in Stratton before it closed this evening. I made a special effort to reach Maine 27 early, in case I needed to wait a long time for a ride.
