Hike N Priase Hiking Chauncey Peak 3-30-13

Today I hiked with my church Hiking Group up to Chauncey Peak in Meriden CT. We had a great Special Easter Sunrise service and Brian Miller was the special speaker..  The GPS stats are missing a mile of trail and about an hour of time because I stopped it when we were not moving and forgot to restart it again.  There are some pictures below and the GPS Stats.

Eagle Beak Cliff 3-29-13

Hiked up to Eagle Beak Cliff today. Finally getting warmer, I had to take my jacket off and hike just in my shirt and I was still sweating.. I could feel the hear rising from the ground off the dead leaves baking in the sun, felt nice. Frogs are singing too so that is all a good sign that Spring is here.. Thank God, I thought winter would never get over..  The GPS stats and some pictures are below.

Hiking Bear Hill Loop from Aircraft Rd 3-27-13

Took a Hike today on Bear Hill Loop from the south side off Aircraft Rd. This was a Moderate Hike with some serious challanges like The China Wall which is 50 yards long and about 75 feet straight down and you have to walk right on the edge about 2 or 3 feet in from the edge. This was difficult with 2 dogs to say the least.. This is not a hike for anybody afraid of hights… Below are some pictures and a link to a video and the GPS Stats.

Hiking Bear Hill Loop 3-15-13

Hiked Bear Hill loop today. There are still some spots with over a foot of snow out here.  It was frozen hard today so I was able to just walk on top of the snow which is much easier than plowing through it when it is soft and you sink into it.   The GPS starts and some pictures are below.

Hiking at Cedar Ln & Brooks Rd

The snow is starting to melt, finally. Still 6 to 12 inches in some parts and some areas are exposed ground now. Still a tough hike with the snow that is left. Should be all gone in a couple of weeks. Can’t wait.
