I’ll be staying off the trails until all the snow melts. And there’s nothing… and I mean NOTHING that anyone can say or do to convince me otherwise. I hate hiking in the snow.
For those who live in New England, I’m sure you’ve been asking, “What the HECK is with all this snow lately? It just seems like there is one storm after another!” Well, you aren’t going crazy; we have had an extraordinary amount of snow this winter season, and there’s more to come! There’s a complicated answer to this simple question. We are in the negative phase of the North Atlantic Oscillation. Sounds interesting, right?
My name is Mary Campbell, I’m 25 (almost 26!!) and I’m the event coordinator for Trails of Freedom. I also do some of the video editing. I’m going to be blogging about what it’s like living with a disability, and more importantly, try to show everyone that life isn’t over with a scary diagnosis. For my first entry, I want to give everyone a little background on my medical history, leading up to the four scariest words in my life.
Follow Trails of Freedom on a journey through Kent Falls State Park, a hiking location of just under 300 acres in Kent, Connecticut that offers views of some of the state’s most beautiful waterfalls. After watching the video, you might also want to visit the Kent Falls State Park overview in our Connecticut Hike Database.
Join the entire Trails of Freedom East Coast Division as they conquer the Blue Trail, one of Sleeping Giant’s most difficult hikes. Please enjoy the video above as Mary shares an interesting overview of Sleeping Giant State Park, including the history, the landscapes and the numerous trails at one of Connecticut’s most popular hiking destinations!
