Any day I can get outside is a good day. Even better if I have a chance to create some photographs. Today I managed to get outside three times. First I got outside with our dog River. We went for a nice 3 mile hike on the trails that follow the Chemung River near West Elmira. We took a nice leisurely pace, as River decided that she needed to examine and sniff… Read More

As I get to know this natural world around me….. It wasn’t too long ago that I didn’t know that the Pine Creek Rail Trail existed. One end of the trail, what I would call the beginning because it is closer to me than the other end, is only an hour away from where I live. And yet it was unknown to me for most of my life until recent years. So… Read More

Its funny how something you were completely unaware of for along time can become one of your favorite things. Growing up we were a fairly outdoorsy and active family. We went camping and visited some state parks. But it is crazy to realize how much you don’t know that you don’t know regarding the wide variety of outdoor experiences that exist. I didn’t discover that we have this amazing trail system that… Read More

After my adventure climbing Saddleback Mountain I still had over a week left in my camping trip in the Adirondacks. My experience on Saddleback had really shaken my confidence in my ability to do this type of hiking. Being in the High Peaks of the Adirondacks was a bit more intimidating than it had been previously. Originally I had planned three big hikes during my first week of a two week long… Read More

My afternoon adventure on my first full day in the Adirondacks turned into an evening adventure because I took a nap in my hammock at camp for longer than I had expected. By the time I convinced myself to get out of camp It was getting to be early evening hours. I enjoy photographing waterfalls. I have a guidebook to waterfalls in the Adirondack region. In the past I have focused on… Read More

One of the best things about being a runner is that there are so many other people out there that enjoy the same thing you do. There are whole communities just waiting for you to show up and say hi. Or in my case to just show up stand around awkwardly and say nothing. Then all those wonderful people will talk to you because you are there and you also love running…. Read More

One photo a day challenge: Day 344. There are a lot of places that I visit in order to run most of the time when I am there. Many of theses places are places that I love and many of them are beautiful. It always makes me sad that I often do not have nice photographs of these places because I usually am not there with a camera. I have ben working… Read More

One photo a day challenge: Day 242. I had a fun adventure today. Today I explored a trail that was new to me. Last year when I set out to explore some nature areas in Pennsylvania using my newly acquired Purple Lizard maps I learned about even more places I wanted to explore at some point. I was exploring the Pine Creek Rail Trail when I learned about the Golden Eagle Trail…. Read More

Camping for us usually means activity and adventure…. I am mostly a homebody. I am definitely not a lets go out and do something kind of person. Not a night out on the town person. Things I would rather to do than go out include but are not limited to: Relax at home and binge watch a TV program I have been waiting to see. Sit and read a book. Maybe even… Read More

One photo a day challenge: Day 226. Today was a great day. Spent the day out and about the Finger Lakes. Celebrating our 17th wedding anniversary with my wife. Beautiful day. Great temperatures for being outside. We visited Geneva. Walked 5.5 miles from Geneva along the northern shore of Seneca Lake through Seneca Lake State Park. Relaxed at the visitor center. Drove around to all the garden centers. Possibly acquired even more… Read More
