Last Saturday Stony Brook received her first official snow of the season. Some snow had fallen during the night and more was falling as I took the dog outside for her morning routines. It was beautiful to watch. Snow has a way of muffling and quieting the normal sounds, adding an almost sacred quality to the space. My little corner of the world felt still and calm and I thanked God for the beauty of snow-falling and blanketing the ground, the trees, the bushes, even my house.

It’s been an adventure I will never forget. I hiked 69 miles —from Hanover, NH, to Lincoln, NH. Outside of a few of those miles, each one was a challenge. I bouldered, scrambled, pulled, climbed, ascended, and descended 5 mountains. Along the way, I’ve met some amazing people, acquired my trail name—Stout Heart—and witnessed true community on the trail. Unexpected surprises and blessings have been abundant. I’m grateful for the experience and the stories. #everywheregod #appalachiantrailI skipped a couple of days due to lack of cell signal, but I loved my morning at Lonesome Lake Hut. #Day9 #appalachiantrail#Day6—the top of Mt. Moosilauke. Amazing views! #appalachiantrail #everywheregod
