    No, don't feed the ponies. I was watching a small herd, with mares nursing foals, for a while, until they started to drift off. When I sat down on a nearby bench to eat a granola bar, in short order...

    When I finally completed the AT as a section hiker, I applied for the award, not because I needed "validation" but just to mark the event, a milestone of sorts. Truth be told, I have no idea where...

    I would love to do another chunk of Vermont's Long Trail, if my back is up to it. Meanwhile, it's daily walks in the local state park with my 14-year-old husky, who insists on them with her...
