About My Blog

My first post set out what McWilliams Takes a Hike is about, or at least it began to.


The subject is taking to the trails and byways in whatever way we can – short outings close to home, big adventures, even hikes in memory and imagination. And it’s about telling what happened on those escapes. I am discovering that the fun – and hardships – of a hike can be enjoyably relived in the writing about them. The blog will stray from time to time into that area — the task of writing about walking. (I write a monthly hiking article, by the way, for The Hour of Norwalk, Connecticut. They can be found under the Taking a Hike tab).

Hikers, like everyone else, need ideas, inspiration and information — Where are the good places to hike? Which have gone to the dogs? Do waterproof boots really exist? Where are the good books and articles for armchair escape? I hope above all that this blog will lead to relationships with people who share my interests and questions, and that we can swap stories and get answers together.
