Bienvenido. Willkommen. Welcome. Hey. Hi. Hello.
Welcome to Green Life Blue Water where ecology meets life. I’m passionate about environmental rightism, not right as in adherence to the right as a political ideology, but environmental rightism, as in, doing what’s right by and for the environment and each other (so Webster’s, if you’re reading this, consider adding another definition).
This New Year’s, my family and I had the good fortune to spend three wonderful days hanging out with great friends in the Pocono mountains in Bushkill Falls, Pennsylvania. While the husbands and kids took to the ski slopes, the wives took to the hills. Unfortunately, Bushkill Falls, known as “the Niagra of Pennsylvania” with its series of eight waterfalls and scenic hiking trails, was closed. Spraying, icy water makes for treacherous hiking conditions...

Hiking the Back Forty
back + forty, meaning “back side of a farm”. In the Homestead Acts (1860s–), farmers were granted a quarter section; a section was 640 acres, a quarter section was 160 acres, and the quarter section was itself subdivided into four quarter-quarter sections of 40 acres each: two front forty and two back forty.
