2020, in spite of the pandemic, was a pretty amazing year! When the shit hits the fan, you can always get outside.

Documents from the life of John Salathe.  You can zoom in on these to see all the information included regarding his life. The census and the S.S. Chicago manifest have the most information.

From Acadia National Park, to the White Mountains, and a place called Sculptured Rocks in Groton, NH

Kayaking with the kids, Lincoln Woods, RI (Early Summer 2018)

Scenes from Mt. Grace, Warwick, MA.  1,617 feet above sea level.  That’s Mt. Manadnock in NH in the distance.  The MM represents the Metacomet-Monadnock Trail running 114 miles across Massachusetts.

The beginning.  Mt. Major in New Hampshire, 2017.  This was my first hike rediscovering the outdoors, seeking wellness.  I weighed 275 pounds and barely made it.  It took me something like four hours, but was totally worth it.
