Chris McNally’s Illustrated Nutmeg Nor’Easter

Sometimes, adventure comes calling.

For Chris McNally that call came from Ritchey when we asked him to tackle the Nutmeg Nor’Easter with nothing more than a rough outline of must-dos and our adventure-ready Ascent.


What came of his travels was a diary, rich with visual euphoria, that invoked the crisp chill of fall air on our cheeks as if racing through a shower of descending golden leaves ready for their loamy bed on a trail aiming for a place only Chris knew best how to describe.
