Upcoming events (5+)
If anyone is free on Tuesday morning I am snowshoeing around Lake Bonita. This is an easy snowshoe with lightly rolling terrain. Around 2 miles. If you are interested I will be at the unofficial park and ride off of exit 16 on Northway at 9:45. If you are coming Northbound on the Northway take a right off exit 16. The parking area will be on the left side. If you are coming southbound take a left off of exit 16.
A classic winter hike in the heart of the Adirondacks. Great views of the high peaks and lower mountains from this summit. We will start from South meadows and hike to the summit. From we will snow shoe down the new trail to the bob sled runs where we have spotted a car. About five miles with a ascent of 740 ft. Bring snow shoes and micro spikes.
I will be scheduling some day photography road trips to different areas within driving distance for photographers who are interested in taking photos in a variety of settings. This road trip will be to Old Sturbridge Village. If you have never been to Old Sturbridge Village it is a step back in time to the 1800's. There is a fee to enter the village. If you are 55 years or older it is $26.00, if under 55 it is 28.00. I can take 3 people in my car. NO tripods or Monopods are allowed. For those who are interested in developing their photography skills this is a great place as we will be photographing indoors and outside. Old Sturbridge Village showcases 40 antique buildings moved from throughout New England, each restored to show how they would have been furnished and used during the early 19th century. Three areas—the Center Village, the Mill Neighborhood, and the Countryside—show different ways of rural New England life in the 1830s. Visitors to Old Sturbridge Village in January and February will be treated to a festive story experience in which residents of a 19th century New England town prepare for a seasonal celebration – a winter ball, filled with “warmth and cheer!” Each trade shop, home, and business on the Village Common will be brought to life by costumed historians as they talk about how 19th- century folks would have prepared for such a lively event. While such occasions were relatively rare, rural balls most typically took place in winter when there was less pressing work on the farm. Visitors will gain insight into how people in early New England planned for an evening of dancing, socializing, and fun. We can carpool from Latham. Inclement weather will reschedule this meetup.
