Story-WPC

The past week has not only been a difficult one for the humans in our house, but for our animals as well. Due to two nor Easter’s, we were left without power for just about seven days. As good as a friend as he is to us, I know that our dog Jase was as miserable as we were.

Knowing this, he was still the same happy member of the family that he always is. Needless to say, this pictures say it all!! I can’t tell you enough about what a great dog he is.

When I complete new hikes (and even old ones) I try to include these two things in at least one of the pictures. My partners and tour guides, the ones that have been with me during every hike over the last 17 or so, are my day pack and hiking poles. They are true tour guides that have never complained about the length of a hike or the severity of the weather.

These three photos were taken at Ward Pound Ridge, a place where I have spent many, many hours hiking since this past summer. Located about 20 minutes from my house, it offers a multitude of hiking trails that offer a sense of peace and tranquility to either start a day or end one.

A naked tree reaching up to the sky. Pictures like this symbolize the death of one season and the awakening of another. With no leaves, they seem to searching for something that they probably will never find. This is why I love hiking during the fall and winter. You just look up and life is waiting for you!

My second favorite hiking photo of the year! This was a sunset after exiting the woods in Ward Pound Ridge Reservation (late October). The contrast between the sky and the trees is what makes the photo special for me.
