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.

I had an extraordinary and unexpected early morning run. Late last night I drove through heavy t-storms to #Vermont and couldn’t find a vacant motel anywhere near where I planned to stop. I ended up getting the last available room at the Quality Inn in Quechee at midnight. I awoke early, explored #QuecheeGorge at sunrise and then ran into the village. The basement door @simonpearceinc was already open and the hydro powered factory was buzzing with activity. I’ve visited several times, but seeing the operation humming at dawn was a thrill. I could have spent all day watching them make martini 🍸 glasses, but my time was short. #trailrunning #simonpearce
Last night, I got a fabulous tour of the brand new Yale Center for Musculoskeletal Care Surgical Center in #newhaven The technology and cost $$$$ was mind blowing. It wa devise to that there is much profit in Orthopaedic medical devices and procedures. I’m all in on efficiency and improving quality of care, but rising health care expenses remain a huge problem for @horsteng and many small and mid-sized businesses. I don’t want surgery, but after meeting the doctors at this amazing facility, this is the place to get knee, hip, shoulder, and other body work done.
Newtown #Cyclocross was a blast. @the_ccap #teamhorstjuniorsquad #teamhorstsports #crossspikes
The @lego 5K Family Road Race is always so much fun. #shenipsitstriders #teamhorstsports #lego #running 🏃🏽‍♂️🏃‍♀️
I made a quick afternoon trip to #centralpark for the @appalachianmountainclub YOP 50th anniversary celebration. We heard several exceptional speakers highlight the importance of getting kids outdoors. AMC will help get 9,000 kids outside in 2018. Despite my car and train adventure, I saw a lot of trees on a lovely day. I wish I could have taken a park lap or two on bike or foot. Sadly, I came straight from work and had no time. 🚙 🚊 🌲 #appalachianmountainclub
Lovely day for the first XC meet of the season. 🏃🏾‍♀️🏃🏽‍♂️
