2015 Appalachian Mountain Club Photo Contest

I took 3rd place in the Recreation Close to Home category of the 21st Appalachian Mountain Club Photo Contest. My photo, Rail Trail Snowshoe, was taken on the Hop River State Park Trail in my hometown of Bolton, Connecticut in February 2015 during our epic winter. The low resolution image in this post doesn’t do it justice.

Debbie, the kids, and I ventured out during a heavy snowfall to explore the trails in Bolton Notch State Park and Freja Town Park. The rail trail is right out our front door. We love where we live.

Congratulations to all of the honorees. We have some amazing photographers in our club.

I had to sit out of the 2014 contest after winning in 2013. I had winning images in 2011 and 2009. At this rate, I sit out every even year! I’m proud to keep my streak of honored images alive, and I’m looking forward to 2017.

Just happened to be walking by the restaurant where @trailrunningmom and I had our first date in 1999! We dropped off two-dozen old pairs of #trailrunning shoes next door. I eat a lot less pizza these days, and when I do, it’s #vegan so we are headed to @floraweha for dinner instead. 🏃‍♀️ 👠 ☔️

So content after our first family #skiing and #snowboarding #adventure in nearly two years. I missed last season with a bum leg. It was great to see that the kids progressed nicely during my absence from the slopes. We are looking forward to more mountain fun. @jiminypeak #jiminypeak #jiminypeeks #familybusiness #berkshires 🎿🏂 🏔

My first ever The Ice Weasels Cometh was my 19th and final #cyclocross race of the season. I had a strong ride and was very happy considering that my second race of calendar 2018 (last race of last season) ended up with me breaking a leg. #iceweasels was a much better result and it’s great to finish with peak fitness. Doing most of the @zanksscx gave me a fresh reason to push through this cross season. Today’s race was a solo adventure but I saw lots of teammates and friends. #teamhorstsports #crossspikes #sevencycles @seven_cycles #zanksscx #horstengineering #crossisboss #lifedeathcyclocross
Sunshine! ☀️ Despite what others may say... #cyclocross in December is SO much better when it is sunny. Today @nbx_bikes Gran Prix of Cyclocross, Day 1, it was cold but clear and dry. I wouldn’t call it a beach day, but it was pretty good. I’m not so sure about Day 2 forecast for tomorrow. #teamhorstsports #teamhorstjuniorsquad #nbxcx #crossspikes #crossisboss 🚴🏽
