Adventures in Snowshoeing on Weir Hill

Though I had long been interested in the sport, it wasn’t until our students in the Outdoor Adventure Club asked me to take them snowshoeing that I found the time to learn.

JUNO 2015

Juno 2015 Was the Perfect Storm!

Well, winter has finally come to Massachusetts! Juno 2015 brought us over two feet of snow, and three snow days off from school last week. We spent the day of the storm safely tucked inside, playing games, cooking, making crafts, and napping.
