Gilead, VT – 09-25-2019

My friend, Nicole, is from “around here” and she posted a picture about this cute Mill and I didn’t have any intentions of heading out to find it.  I was just out driving and lo and behold, there it was!

Such a cute little place nestled away from the road – the red is now faded to pink.

Driving back I, of course, went a different route.  I came up on this sweet old barn with an orange tree w/half its leaves falling.  Made for a gorgeous backdrop. 

Saddaday Falls–5.5.2019

It was gloomy when I got up, so decided to drive around the Kanc and ended up at Saddaday Falls, even this time of year the trail heads are already packed.

Before I got to the falls, I tucked in to this other spot on the way.  With the melt the waters are running fast and hard and kind of dirty to!

The falls is a short hike, but sometimes the better attraction is the river that leads you to the falls.

There was still snow on the ground in many places.  And the water was cold, but the walk/hike was fun and I got to take my time and snap a few pictures.

Bridal Veil Trail–4.22.19

I decided to hit up the trail after work.  I didn’t make it TO the falls, because – well I am slow and I take pictures!  I will have to hit it up at noon on a nice cloudy afternoon this summer.

IMG_4472IMG_4473IMG_4475IMG_4477IMG_4479IMG_4480

After about a mile, I knew I was not going to get to the 2.5 miles in mark to the actual water falls, but I also knew I heard running water!  Off the trail and into the woods we go!

IMG_4481IMG_4482IMG_4483IMG_4488IMG_4490IMG_4492

Yes the keys are back!  I have another “series” I’m working on, but I do think that will be an instagram only gig!

IMG_4503IMG_4514IMG_4519IMG_4524IMG_4496IMG_4498

Very worth the dashing down and following the water!  Also, it was 74 in the woods and a nice, cool, 68 down here.  Also, prettier!

I had to scamper around a lot, got dirty, and sweaty and had a blast.  Part of the down side of being away from home is, well, being away from home.  The upside, is the experience and the adventures I can have.

After Work Runaround–4.19.19

After work I decided, since it was nice to hit up a few places and see how the water was flowing and what things I could snap pics of!

Sometimes even brown on brown makes for great photographs.

My wife and I went out leaf peeping when I was up home.

I took the above with my cell phone, as much as some folks say they “look the same” as DSLRs, I can always see the difference.

I hadn’t ever been to Fish River Falls, neither had my wife, who got all adventurous on me and we trekked along the side of the river for a bit, running around on rocks.  fun!

Kancamagus Highway–10-03-2018

I had happy feet one night and Wendy (I’m blaming her again, yes!) had spoken about the Kancamagus – and so off I went!

Mount Washington, NH–9-8-2018

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.
