Training hikes

 This week we hiked two training hikes to prepare for our climb of Mount Tecumseh, a 4000 footer in NH. We hiked in Old Furnace State Park in Killingly on Tuesday, a nice easy hike with a pretty vista that is wicked close to The Ice Box, an amazing ice cream shop that specializes in small batches. I ordered and devoured apple pie ice cream with caramel and nuts - HEAVEN!!!! 

Then Thursday we explored the Blue Blazed trails and started at the beginning of the Shenipsit trail in East Hampton. It went straight UP! The vista is worth the climb, you can see the Connecticut River and on a clear day, I hear you can see Long Island! 

Then we went to Loco Perro, a fun Mexican restaurant and enjoyed some margs and chips! Definitely a fun hike and dinner!
