So I headed up to Milan, to see my cousin, Bonnie, her hubby, Dave, their daughter Harley as well as her brother, Mike, his wife, Tammy and daughter Sam. On the way, I was told about Nansen Ski Jump – of course I had to visit!
I got to Milan, and the “girls” were off getting milk and “getting wifi” as there is no cell where the cabin, or as Mike Calls it The Chalet!
We hauled some wood, did some work and when it started snowing after the tour – Bonnie and everyone encouraged me to “go take some pictures!”
And pictures I did take. Bonnie and Dave have a great spread down in NH and very much worth spending time with family!
I had happy feet one night and Wendy (I’m blaming her again, yes!) had spoken about the Kancamagus – and so off I went!
I did a bunch of “five minute photo stops”.
And here are the results!
Not bad, right?
flowing water everywhere! I’m going to be an expert by the time this assignment is over with and I don’t mind in the least.
And that’s a wrap!
Some days I get out early. Some days far later. On this day: early. I sent out to just “take some pictures.” Most were 5-10 mins photo stops. Here we go!
The beauty of this area is there is always something to take pictures of. Old buildings, or stone walls, or wicked reflections, or… flowing water….
I drove around towards Crawford Notch. Stop on here and there for more pictures. Caught the sun off some mountains.
Then I made a stop at Silver Cascade (I think that’s the name!) and made a quick jaunt up that, and again, more flowing water! Then on the way home, I found Fourth Iron camping grounds and stop there before I lost the light.
My coworker, Wendy (Hi Wendy!) keeps giving me some after work suggestions which is great! Today it was The Dells, a series of small tails, literally in the middle of town.
Another after work adventure! I had a week of short hours, just low pt load to be honest. So instead of going home and vegging out, I hit up a few of the places that are packed on weekends.
The drive there was gorgeous! I stopped into a few places and did a five min photo stop. Where I take as many pics in five mins as I can.
The Bath is really pretty, the water is clear, as much in NH is, and a wonderful smell of clean for some reason struck me.
The sun was great for taking photos of my keys for my key series here! Many places because of being on a gorge, etc, it’s a struggle or at least a challenge.
I had to stop, the clouds in the 1st pic are outrageous!
Driving up Mt Washington is super fun, and a little scary for someone who isn’t into heights and have bouts of vertigo.
Be ready for wind! And some of the most gorgeous views ever.
The problem with such views is no perspective at times, so things look flat and while gorgeous, lacks texture. So, that’s why the keys! and any other objects I can use to give things perspective as well as a break in the view.
It was a fun day, and again, windy!
The biggest problem I face is the crowds! Weekends are impossible to go anywhere, cars are lines along the highway for miles. And the days are growing shorter, so short hops to places are best!
Littleton is a fun little town, with a few places to take a decent picture
CHUTTERS! A huge store filled with: Candy
yes, look my keys!
And a few pictures from home. I love home. And my backyard.
