Sometimes the best star trails are captured during very cold nights on the beach. Taken at Sakonnet Point, Little Compton, Rhode Island. In the distance you can see Little Cormorant Rock Lighthouse.
Spent an afternoon hiking around Ke’e Beach and the Nā Pali Coast on the Kalalau Trail. Incredible sights to be seen as this part of the island is a rainforest
During a once in a lifetime experience, I was given the opportunity to explore the island of Kauai in Hawaii. While there some friends and I made it out to Kalalau lookout on the Northwest side of the island. We stayed just long enough for the sun to set and a brilliant display of stars toContinue reading “Kalalau Lookout. The End of the World.”
People often miss out on so much by going to sleep…
Sometimes in life you come across amazing products. And other times, you discover products that dramatically fall short of the hype that’s been built around them. Beware, this is a tale of disappointment.
One of my favorite local places to visit is Buzzards Bay Brewing in Westport, Massachusetts. An old farm converted into a brewery. In the summer, the front of the farm is lively and bustling. Come winter, the crowds die down and a few die hard communitarians remain. In this case, not many people were aroundContinue reading “Tree of Light”
I love quotes. I love quotes because they’re often short phrases I can use to help both myself and others make sense of certain situations. They can help others know that what they’re thinking about or experiencing is often something that others have experiences in the past. We aren’t alone in out plights, and youContinue reading “Famous quotes without attribution”
A lot of folks strive to take super crisp photos, as one usually should! On the other hand, sometimes it’s fun to get creative and alter the way light is absorbed into your camera’s sensor (or film!). It often makes the subject matter unrecognizable, but in doing so you create an entirely new subject matter…Continue reading “Out of Focus”

As a native New Englander, I’ve spent a decent amount of time in the mountains of New Hampshire, Vermont, and Western Massachusetts. I’ve been hiking and camping since I was just a small kid. Of course, the Appalachian Mountain Range isn’t the tallest or most extreme in the world, but they’re still amazing and IContinue reading “Hiking Joffre Lakes in British Columbia”

A few introductory words… At 30 years old, I’ve had the opportunity to do a bit of traveling in my day. I’ve seen many beautiful places and met some sensational human beings. That being said, I can honestly say that New Hampshire is still one of the most brilliant locations I’ve ever ventured through. AContinue reading “The National Park Service 100th Anniversary and an overnight hike on Mt. Carrigain”
A common sight on any New England beach is the beach tomato plant. This is actually an invasive species of Rose (Rosa_rugosa) that originates from Asia, but now occupies just about every beach along the coast of the north eastern United States! The rose hips resemble that of small tomatoes, but definitely shouldn’t be eaten! DownloadContinue reading “The Salty Beach Tomatoes”
CALVIN: If people sat outside and looked at the stars each night, I’ll bet they’d live a lot differently. HOBBES: How so? CALVIN: Well, when you look into infinity, you realize that there are more important things than what people do all day. HOBBES: We spent our day looking under rocks in the creek. CALVIN:Continue reading “Looking into infinity”
