  • A Ghostly Mountaintop With A View

    A Ghostly Mountaintop With A View
    Each year, I make my annual trek to Meriden Square or the nearby Target in the Silver City. And each year, usually while mumbling about waiting until the last minute, I stare up at the Hanging Hills of Meriden and Berlin and let out a great big sigh....
