Late Fall Colors: TamarackNovember 2, 2018
Towards the end of Fall after all the vibrant hardwood foliage is gone, it can be hard to find inspiration in the Vermont landscape. I have found my inspiration this year in orange needles of the Tamarack tree. I enjoy hunting for things and finding Tamaracks has given me purpose to go out and shoot.
A Snowy CanoeOctober 29, 2018
Last week we had our first snow in Vermont. I have always wanted to go for a canoe ride with snow on the trees. I made sure not to put the canoe in storage too early this year. It was an amazing experience and I highly suggest it!

North Woods RoadtripAugust 31, 2017
This Summer seemed to go by faster than others. Hannah and I only had the chance to take one camping trip to the northeast kingdom in June for a couple days. This trip was just what we needed to get a final taste of summer camping in some of our favorite places, as well as some new ones that we added to our list.
We started our trip at Brighton state park in Island pond, VT. The canoeing and wildlife viewing opportunities are endless around that part of Vermont. There are two nice beaches around the campground to relax and swim at so if bushwhacking and getting eaten by mosquito’s isn’t your thing you can chill and have a few beers at the beach. We paid a visit to our favorite bog, went for a swim, and woke up in the morning to see the mist burn off Spectacle pond. Next we headed to Maidstone state park. We secured a lean-to on the lake for two days. On the first day we went to the beach and canoed on the lake for sunset. On the second it was the day of the eclipse. We hiked up Monadnock mountain to a fire-tower for a good view. Later we hiked around part of Maidstone lake in a lush forest of evergreens and wild blueberry bushes.
After the two days at Maidstone we didn’t have a plan for our next stop. I looked at the gazetteer and we decided to check out the Connecticut lakes region in northeastern New Hampshire. It took us about an hour and a half to drive up to Big Deer state park a few miles from Canada. The forests up there were even more coniferous than the northeast kingdom of Vermont. It felt wild and untamed; there was only one other person staying at the campground. There were mountains, lakes, and rivers everywhere. The canoeing spots up there were some of the best I have ever seen. We stayed there for a night and on our morning canoe we observed a moose feeding in a bog for about 45 minutes before he disappeared into a thick forested landscape.
Overall we had a good trip. It was a working a vacation for me, but it felt like I also had time to relax. I think we both came back home to Waterbury Center feeling inspired and excited that we found so many cool new places.
