What you'll do
We’ll meet in the morning at the trailhead where I’ll review the trip goals and distribute loaner gear if needed. From there, we’ll get going on our hike where I'll take photos of you and your group as we walk and appreciate the natural scenery and the forest’s peaceful ambiance. Around mid-morning, we’ll break for a snack, take some more photos, and work on trail skills from knot tying to map and compass depending on your interests. After the break, we’ll continue on the trail, learning hiking tips and tricks, discovering the local ecology, and playing trail games (for those young at heart). How far we hiked is totally up to you. I can tailor outings, which generally range from 3 to 6 miles, to your specific requests. At the end of the hike, we’ll return to the trailhead and talk about suggested trips in the region to build upon your newly developed skills. Add-on activities include: + 30-minute light-flow, outdoor yoga session + Extended pre- or post-trip photo session
I have backpacked and traveled the world my whole life and have been leading day and overnight trips for more than ten years in New England. Whether you’d like to learn more about hiking and backpacking, local history, in-the-field photography and video tips, or a sprinkling of everything, I can customize any trip to match your skill level and interests. I have backpacked California’s John Muir Trail, Vermont’s Long Trail, Europe’s Tour du Mont Blanc, and have summited New England’s sixty-seven 4,000-foot mountains. I work professionally as a photographer and a media expert and offer far-from-traditional individual or family photo shoots at unique locations along our trip. I am certified in Wilderness First Aid and CPR, a Master Leave No Trace educator, and have taught backcountry photography courses.
Guests may borrow backpacks and other outdoor gear upon request.
