Out of Focus

A lot of folks strive to take super crisp photos, as one usually should!

Hiking Joffre Lakes in British Columbia

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.

The Salty Beach Tomatoes

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!

Looking into infinity

CALVIN: If people sat outside and looked at the stars each night, I’ll bet they’d live a lot differently. HOBBES: How so?

The Foggy Causeway

“I see my path, but I don’t know where it leads. Not knowing where I’m going is what inspires me to travel it.”

Sweeping Snow on Mt Chocorua

In early December 2015, a few friends and myself ascended mt. chocorua on a relatively mild day (at the base of the mountain anyway). As we hiked up a trail from the kancamagus highway, the temperature quickly dropped as expected! We spent a bit of time in the late afternoon at the summit, the temperature hovered…
