Mission Statement

Hello, friends new and not so new, and thanks for stopping by! I’ve missed the blogging community since my last venture came to its natural end and I’m delighted to be diving back in. So welcome to Bully & Blaze.

“It’s Not A 4,000-footer, But…” the view down into Crawford Notch from the ledges on Willard is something special. Here it is with a blogger and a nice-photo-foiling pit bull in the way.

This blog will follow my adventures in hiking the 48 tallest mountains in New Hampshire — that is, the 4,000-footers — with (and without, but hopefully mostly with!) Lilo, my pit bull terrier. There will be side trips to other trails throughout New England. And we’ll definitely spend some time talking about the challenges and joys of hiking with a dog who’s a little different than most of those one meets on trail. (First up: higher-summit jackets for the comfort-loving single-coated pup.)

Hale was 4,000-footer #15 for me and #5 for her. The weather was not as ominous as it looks in the picture and the walk out — we took the long way, down past Zealand Hut at peak foliage — was utterly glorious.

I’ll be pre-writing and scheduling posts for Tuesdays and Thursdays, with Wordless Wednesday pictures in between. We’ll start next week with introductions and the current state of Lilo’s cold-weather garb. However you found this blog, I do hope you’ll stick around — and if you have a blog, please drop a link in the comments so that I can follow you back!
