July 17, 2017
After ten years of monthly walks, I hosted my last regular monthly walk at Great Meadows on June 9, 2017. I am so grateful for the enthusiastic turnout and gracious words of farewell. We enjoyed a warm and picture-perfect evening with a beautiful sunset. Gnaty plumes mystically pulsed above the silver maple on the dike trail. Bullfrogs croaked underfoot as we watched them from the observation deck, and tree frogs filled floodplain with their trilling chorus. And we watched herons flying in the fading light before the moon rose brightly above the tree tops.
I will continue to work on and share my extensive photographic archive of Concord's wild and historic landscape and to further develop this web page as an interpretive resource for the town. I hope to offer occasional walks, field programs, presentations, and hopefully exhibitions in the future. As we reconnect with our old Vermont roots, I'm hoping to discover and weave in new threads of connection between the places that I call home ground. Please stay tuned and keep in touch.
