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!
I ended up with a shorter day today – so I decided to
skip the gym (you know many of my blogs start off that way!) – and hit up Barred Island – It’s a mile in and a mile out – you MUST go during low tide and you’ll have 2hrs before and 2hrs after (the hike in is about 45 mins)
The trail is worn, the earth bare to the snarled roots of the surrounding trees.
Then as you come closer to the shore, feet and time have cut a swath of earth away and revealed the granite beneath – making for a solid walk way to the beach
Then – the beach – at low tide you’ve got about 2hrs before and 2hrs after the “low point” of the tide. You can walk over to the Island and explore it – along with the shore – it’s a great view – I’d love to hit it up at sunset – but not having to walk back thru that trail at deep dusk
It’s a real fun walk, you’ve got sand, rocky area, lovely huge granite rocks – and nothing like that great sea air.
Since I am far behind posting on my blog. Far to busy it seems. I’m going to try and catch up!
While away in New Mexico, I was always trying to find new places to see. Fun way to do that. Hiking.
I picked the LightHouse Trail, one because it was a flat trail with about 800 feet of rock climbing straight up to get to the Light House Formation. And it was the longerst of the trails.
I had a chance play with settings. It was on this hike I decided that I was going to get a lens that was both a wide angle and a zoom. Swapping out was killing me! (I did get a 18mm-270mm lens! It rocks!)
It was a great hike. The upward climb (which I didn’t take pictures of, I was to busy panting and sweating) was hell! But worth it.
