A few weeks ago (after our most recent big snowstorm) I invited a friend from work to hike Essex Street’s loop trail, around a hill that’s colloquially known as Suicide Hill. It’s known as Suicide Hill since its angle is treacherously steep, often causing sledding conditions to become dangerous during the winter months. We met […]
On Saturday, I picked up my sister and we took the beautiful drive along route 1 to Camden to attend their 15th annual Winterfest!
