    We aced out on the weather, very sunny, virgin snow and on the brisk side. Winds did not start to perk up until near the end. We had some good hills, good views, good waterside hiking and most importantly good luck. Lost a few people, set out a runner, Anna, but wound up retrieving them with a cellphone call. That was the good luck. Nice having the opportunity to lead such a wonderful group of people.

    Svetlan, wouldn't a hiking "tavern" be a better choice? haha

    If it's too cold we can always occupy a local hiking restaurant.

    Hey Ted,
    Will this be a snowshoe hike if we get enough snow today?

    Western Connecticut Outdoor Adventurers are also hiking here. They are meeting at 11 am. Parking may be tight.

    Tarrywile has two parking lots. If entering from Southern Blvd. the first parking lot is on the right. If it is full just continue driving past the mansion up to the next parking lot which is larger.

    Ted, you say the hike is 3 hours. How does that translate into distance?

  • Patricia

    Ted, interested in attending but uncertain of the "steep" inclines. Can you provide some info on the "ability" level. Thanks!
