The Dells–Fall Addition–9-25-2019

I got out of work late so off to the Dells just for a walk!  It’s about a mile of “trail” and some fresh air.

The pine needles litter the ground, and the air is nice and crisp even at 70 degrees.

The sun was hitting the pond in a surreal way, and I did my best to capture it.

Middle Sugarloaf Trail–08-20-2019

An afterwork hike – I’d done the North trail, but time didn’t allow me the extra mile that night so back I went!

I got a few new props while in Boston, namely Rogue and Capt Marvel!  I have a few more but I didn’t use them.  Yes that is a smurf!

Talk about a nice view!  It was also super warm, even though it was windy.  Well worth the hike!

The whole hike took about 4 hours, mindful of the fact that 1 – I take a lot of pictures.  2 – I am a slow hiker.  The All trials states 2.6 miles, but my fitbit clocked me in at just under 4 miles.  I do take smaller steps, I do go around far more obstacles as well so it could be I just take more steps than the average hiker. 

The Basin–Lazy Day–7-28-2019

We had some killer heat the last week in NH and there was no long distance hiking to be had! 

So I hit up the Basin one afternoon, with my camera and a towel to hang out.

You can’t beat the water here in NH, clear and always flowing.  And the mushrooms are in abundance!

IMG_7049IMG_7048IMG_7050IMG_7063IMG_7058IMG_7061

Yes, that IS A smurf! 

I picked him up when shopping for Hardy Boy books on the weekend.  I thought, well mushrooms = smurfs, right?

Cherry Mountain–7-24-2019

Oh Cherry Mountain!  Nice hike on a very hot day, shady and comfortable hike.  A few steep spots however.  Worth the trek!

IMG_6942IMG_6930IMG_6933IMG_6936IMG_6938IMG_6939IMG_6940IMG_6941

Of course, I hunted out the mushrooms.  As well as how the great shafts of light were hitting the ground.  Never know what you will find and make for a great picture.

IMG_6962IMG_6966IMG_6944IMG_6946IMG_6947IMG_6954IMG_6957IMG_6958

Mr. Frog jumped over my boots so I thought I’d take his picture.  He didn’t sit still for very long, however. 

IMG_6971IMG_6967IMG_6968IMG_6969IMG_6977IMG_6970

The views!  You cannot beat the views, can you?  ‘nuff said.

Wonder Woman! 

I have several trinkets that I carry with me.  Wonder Woman is one of them.  I thought I’d give a nice perspective shot a try. 

Sugarloaf North Trail–07-03-2019

Great hike!  Not super long (3 miles total).

IMG_6502IMG_6496IMG_6497

Can’t say enough about the views.

IMG_6518IMG_6504IMG_6505IMG_6506IMG_6507IMG_6508IMG_6509IMG_6513IMG_6515IMG_6516

And the lens ball!  This thing is a heavy lil bugger too.  And the keys make an appearance!

Kingsman Trail to Bold Notch

This was a bit more challenging than I thought it was going to be.  A lot of water crossing and balancing, but a great hike!

As always the views at the top were stellar!  Quiet and peaceful and so worth the 4000 calorie burn!

I got a lens balls and I have been having some fun with it.  Not sure I am in love with it, but I am working towards that!

As always I found mushrooms!  When it takes 3 miles to get up to the views, sometimes you entertain yourself with taking pictures of ‘shrums.

Georgiana and Harvard Falls Trail–06-27-2019

Another After work jaunt!  This time I found another set of waterfalls to tramp around. 

IMG_6246IMG_6241IMG_6250IMG_6225IMG_6227IMG_6231IMG_6233IMG_6238

I was very excited, the mushrooms are popping!  Great falls the lower ones are spectacular, and nothing like that sound as well. 

IMG_6271IMG_6274IMG_6277IMG_6254IMG_6256IMG_6259IMG_6263IMG_6269

The hike after this started to get a bit harder, more rocks, more roots.  And a little less sun, which is great for taking pictures of moving water!

IMG_6327IMG_6281IMG_6282IMG_6287IMG_6293IMG_6295IMG_6299IMG_6301IMG_6304IMG_6311IMG_6314IMG_6319

With each set of falls, the trail got slightly more difficult, and the falls got prettier.  Isn’t that how it always goes?

IMG_6365IMG_6328IMG_6333IMG_6338IMG_6339IMG_6347IMG_6352IMG_6353IMG_6359IMG_6362

I sat down and looked over and saw this circle twisting around and instantly it reminded me of a cake, am I wrong??

So a 3 mile hike, due to going off the trail on purpose, and 4 hours later!  Tada!

Rock on, dot com!
