Ordinarily, April at HOWL conjures images of dreary skies, bare fields, and road ruts and wash-outs that have even veteran mud-season drivers dreaming of the day they’ll live on a paved road. Not so this April, when the legendary Alix Dobkin entertained a sell-out crowd in HOWL’s community room. April at HOWL? Now I’llContinue reading “Alix Dobkin plays to a packed house”
A spring snow storm followed by bright sunshine made for a lovely weekend of outdoor delights (and a ton of shoveling) up on the hill here at HOWL. All over Huntington, sugarhouses hosted visitors for Huntington’s Open Sugarhouse Weekend events. Stop in at Beaudry’s store to pick up a pint of syrup if you didn’tContinue reading “Spring Snow”

We were having too much fun to take pictures during the event, but at least we caught ClareContinue reading “Musical Instruments Petting Zoo”

Meet outside the HOWL house (895 Salvas Road) for a 1:00 (prompt!) departure. Meander along hilly (but not steep) trails.Continue reading “Midday, Midweek Meander Dec. 12, 1:00”
