March was dubstep, April is ragtime. I'll be doing spoken word by the fall! Great hike, lots of views and lots of history. And hopefully the end of cold weather camping for 6 months.

Beaver Brook Trail to Lost Lake - 4/13/14

After poking around some older pages in the site, I decided Beaver Brook and Lost Lake would be good to revisit.
