Welcome To New England Mountain Dreams

This is the last major site we are putting out here. At least, for a little while.

I decided to change the format here since WordPress our publishing software rolled out a new version last month that allows us to tie multiple websites together under a single domain.

It will take a bit for me to really populate these six state sites with content. But, check back…I’ll do my best to find some interesting stories…

For now here is a map from Wikipedia to give you an idea of the area we will cover…

Climbing 6 Peaks in 6 States

A great story in the New York Times by Mark Aiken  about climbing the highest peak in each of the New England states.

THE world’s Seven Summits — the highest mountain on each continent — were in the news this year when the Alaskan climber Vern Tejas set a record by ascending them all in just 134 days. Inspired by him, I set out to climb a few peaks of my own. My challenge would be to hike what I call the Six Summits — the highest point in each New England state. I required no pack animals, porters or supplemental oxygen. Armed instead with a map, compass, hiking boots and a blue Honda, my journey lasted six days and brought me to six unique places.

Check out the rest at Explorer – 6 Days, 6 States, 6 Peaks – NYTimes.com.

I really like these videos…And Basin Harbor looks like a really neat place to have in your childhood memories…And not a bad place for grown up memories either.

News From Vermont • Vermont

I don’t know how long it’s been since I first stumbled upon Burr Morse of Morse Farm Maple Sugarworks in Montpelier. It seems like I have been reading his email newsletters for just about forever even if I know it hasn’t been all that long. Today, just as I was setting up this website, I received his latest.
