Squam Range Hiking Series: Mt. Morgan & Mt. Percival November 3rd
Thursday 10:30am-2:30pm | Mt Morgan Trailhead
Join the SLA this November for the Squam Range Hiking Series where throughout the month we'll hike all 7 of the peaks along the Squam Range.
This is a wonderful opportunity to check off trails listed on the Squam Ranger list. Squam Rangers are a dedicated group of hikers who have conquered 50 miles of trails in the Squam Watershed. Proceeds from this program support the SLA's annual trail maintenance efforts.
For $50 you'll receive the Squam Ranger kit that includes a t-shirt, trail guide & map, trail log and a day pack. After hiking all 50 trails you'll be presented with a Squam Ranger patch, baseball cap, and a certificate.
On this 5.1 mile loop hike we will scramble over rock faces, climb ladders, go through caves and summit Mt Morgan and Mt Percival. We'll enjoy lunch with a spectacular view of Squam Lake before descending down.
What to Bring: Come prepared with weather-appropriate hiking gear (lots of layers, rain gear, and extra socks/shirts/hats/etc.), lunch, snack, and water. Trekking poles are also great to have and if you'd like to borrow a set, we'll have some available.
Audience: This hike is considered by many to be challenging. You must be comfortable with heights and rock scrambling. Hikers should be experienced and capable of hiking 1.5 miles per hour on steep terrain, have good balance, and be steady on their feet. Children must be accompanied by an adult.
Registration: Space is limited to 6 people. Registration required.
An Evening of Songs & Stories with Kris Gruen November 3rd
Thursday 6-9:30pm | Hermit Woods Winery | 72 Main St, Meredith
Original singer-songwriter from a rural Vermont landscape, Kris Gruen writes songs about grownup life infused with a mystic wonder.
About this event
"Kris grew up steeped in classic records. His Americana influenced new folk is grounded in the tradition of great narrative songwriters like Cat Stevens and Paul Simon and yet Kris’s voice is strikingly current. A New York City native who’s put down roots in Vermont, Kris effortlessly blends sagacious wit and emotional depth.
His latest release "Welcome Farewell" finds Kris Gruen spinning autobiographical stories of family, community, and the great outdoors. It's a memoir of sorts, filled with names, places, and other details sourced from his own experience. Gruen has always been a storyteller, but he's rarely been this personal before. The central characters who occupy Welcome Farewell's songs are real people — including his late grandmother, whose influence is honored with tracks like ""Apple Tree"" and the cinematically-arranged "Skyline Drive," to his wife, who invites her husband to join her in the fields during ""When She Says"" — and they lend an earnestness to an album laced with acoustic guitar, swooning pedal steel, and other organic touches. "
