Up Garwin Falls

Waterfalls are always hit or miss in the summer. Either it’s pretty and flowing, or dry and gross, and Upper Garwin Falls seemed to fall right in the middle. Water was flowing still, but I’m sure there would’ve been more had it been spring. By the time we arrived, it was late afternoon and the…

Mount Blue

The Centerville Trail in Mount Blue State Park is one we’ve hiked probably three times already. Once when I was little, once a few years ago, and once this trip. The trail to the top is short and easy; even easier if you have a big Doberman to drag you up. The view is absolutely…

We’re in Maine!

Every July, for as long as I can remember, my parents and I have come up to The Camp in Maine for vacation. It’s so relaxing and there is no pressure to go see or do anything which gives me a chance to read for fun, paint and shoot. While returning to the same place…

The Great Falls

Scaling Saddleback Slope

DO NOT ATTEMPT THIS HIKE. I repeat: DO NOT ATTEMPT THIS HIKE!! It just isn’t fun. Unless your definition of a fun hike is scaling the vertical face of a black diamond ski slope, this so-called “trail” isn’t for you. If you’re going to hike in Maine, please opt for a nice hike in the…

Salty Sleeves

This spring I’ve become obsessed with gingham, bell sleeves and the off the shoulder trend. This top combines the three perfectly! I had so much fun exploring the salt mashes at Cornell Farm in Dartmouth, MA. The hiking trails were so well groomed, I wish I brought my dog along for the adventure.
