Hiking the Flume Gorge, 3/26/22

Location: Lincoln, NH

Date: 3/26/22

Heavily trafficked in the summer (and fairly expensive to get in), the Flume Gorge is incredible in the winter. Definitely a must-hit if you find yourself in the Franconia corridor in the winter (crampons are a must, however). A bit late in the season, but the snow pack was still lighter than it usually is in late March.

Mt. Willard Winter Hike, 3/22/22

Location: Carroll, NH

Mt. Willard is always a great hike, summer or winter. The overlook/payoff is amazing, especially in the winter.

“The Weight of One” – Black Hare Press’ anthology Grimdark

Contracts are signed, so time to start plugging this. @BlackHarePress has accepted my short story, “The Weight of One,” for inclusion in their upcoming Grimdark anthology. This should be a great one, and I can’t wait to get my hands on a copy!

“Red Sands at Morning” – Dark Horses

A shout out to Dark Horses magazine, who have accepted my short story, “Red Sands at Morning.” A bit of a taste:

            Amid the buoys, bits of fishing nets, and jagged tree limbs sat a red sandcastle. Only, not a sandcastle, not really. It certainly had the FEEL of a castle, with walls and swooping turrets and exposed angles that looked defensive in nature. But it was rougher, wilder, and should have been pulverized in the storm had it been built before it. And it certainly wasn’t new; there was no one else in sight.

            “Can we see that sand, Daddy? Please please please…” Alan set the girls on a sturdy tree trunk and made his way through the debris field to the red castle. The closer he got to it, the more sinister it became, with some of the spires topping the thing looking almost razor sharp. It also appeared to have washed in with the rest of the storm junk. As he approached it from the ocean side, there was a clear line between the off-white of the beach sand the solid red of the castle.

White House Trail, Winter Hiking – 03/09/22

Location: Lincoln, NH

Date: 3/9/22

A very short and easy trail that is probably mostly used as a starting point for other trails. Still, a nice walk in the woods, although it is fairly heavily trafficked on the weekends. You can access this just north of the Flume Gorge at the Liberty Springs Trailhead parking lot. For a bit of a loop, hike the length of the trail and take a right at the end of it to hike the bike path back to the parking lot (not the best idea on a weekend – snowmobiles abound!).
