A Sandy Neck In Cape Cod

Sandy Neck is a natural recreation and preservation space located on the southern side of Cape Cod Bay in the town of Barnstable in the state of Massachusetts. It has many trails that wind through a vast marsh housing many nesting areas for Ospreys and other local birds. Moreover, sand dunes separate the beach from the marsh in a unique composition of plantation, climate and scenery.

The video was taken mainly on the beach and trails 1 and 2. It features the following music pieces:

Shadows’ Journey In…. Timbuckhilltoo

This was a hike/walk with "Walks & Rambles In RI" meetup group.

We visited the area known as Buck Hill Management Area in the northwestern corner of RI. The trails used to be old wagon roads used for commuting and are now the paths that walk the visitor through a few ponds, grain fields and the remains of the original settlement houses(you could see a chimney, fence,..etc in the video).
We also passed by the tri-state marker that shows where Rhode Island, Massachusetts and Connecticut meet in the area.
According to the organizer, we followed Ken Weber’s 28th hike trails from his "Weekend Hikes in Rhode Island" book.

The music played in the video clip is:

1- At First It Was Chaos… by Anam Fior

2- Anam Fior by Anam Fior:

3- Our Great War’s a spiritual war, our Great Depression is our lives. We’ve all been… by Anam Fior.

4- Fecunda by Emanuele Errante
This track appears on The Silent Ballet Volume 9

5- Two Halves Of A Line by Last Days:
which also appears on The Silent Ballet Volume 6

Please support the musicians by buying their music.

This was a hike with Charlie’s angels,err Active Singles, group and took place yesterday on a gray day in Freja park around Bolton, CT.

Walking Down The Memory Lane

This was a hike(or walk in the woods) with the Hartford Area Hiking Meetup group. The trail we took is called "Indian Council Caves Trail" and is located in Barkhamsted, CT. It got its name because of its glacier boulders(towards the end of the video clip) with cave-like pockets. Many native american artifacts have been found around the area but it is debated if it was used for council meetings. Most of the pictures show the typical New England Summer where green is the color of the day.

End of Day 2: Taking the Hill by surprise!

I planned to join the Signal Hill Hiking Club on the evening of day 2 but ran late and missed the group. Signal Hill reminded me of some allies in Damascus where my grand parents lived and had a nice view of the entire city.  Unlike Damascus, the Long Beach version had a ton of oil rigs(even between the houses) which explains the statues of two oil workers captured in many photos!
