I occasionally write articles for the Charles River Mud, the newsletter of the Boston Chapter of the Appalachian Mountain Club (AMC). With the permission of the Chapter Chair and of the Mud Editor I am posting versions (often modified) of them here.

I will also post here works in progress, which may end up being published, or may go no further than this site.

Roy Schweiker has kindly written an article on Bushwhacking to the NH 4000 Footers (all of which have trails). Fascinating article, but do not follow in his footsteps unless you know what you are doing!

Peakbagger, a frequent contributor to the AMC and VFTT bulletin boards, has kindly contributed a writeup of one bushwhack route to Mount Isolation. It may not be suitable under summer conditions, but for experienced bushwhackers shortens the trip considerably in winter.

Roy has kindly written a second article for this site on Topographical Prominence, including a list of the 50 most prominent peaks in New England.

I have just started work on a new web site where I will post, amongst other things, shorter articles and essays, some of which will merely be random thoughts on hiking and peakbagging.
