Post by Alicia Heyburn Is it still called a hike if we are not climbing a mountain? I like hiking, whether along a river or up a mountain, but Wednesday’s Alewife Hike was particularly appealing because it was long and secluded (although a bit buggy), while only minutes from Maine’s largest urban area – very convenient for … Read More

Crazy Fabulous

May 7, 2016Hike, Overnight, Snow Shoe

Hi All: I returned home to Portland late this afternoon and after visiting with my family, sat down to write and capture some of our time up at West Branch Pond Camps before the magic of it evaporates and before my brain space becomes crowded up with the bits and pieces, appointments and responsibilities of … Read More

Hike Up Pleasant Mountain

May 7, 2016Hike

I’m not sure it felt like April today up at the summit of Pleasant Mountain (well, maybe April in Maine). Despite the drizzle and chilly temps, we had a good (not hard) hike with really great views. When we reached the top we were very hungry and found a lovely lunch spot, but then the … Read More
