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.

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

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.

Bald Mountain/Bethlehem–7-18-2019

When I hit up Artist Bluff, I missed the walk up to Bald Mountain.  Since I had an early afternoon, but it was super hot (85+) I thought a short hike was a good idea.

IMG_6841IMG_6842IMG_6852IMG_6853IMG_6847IMG_6848IMG_6849IMG_6851

Great hike, less than a mile, but also you’re scrambling up and down over boulders. 

IMG_6869IMG_6854IMG_6855IMG_6858IMG_6859IMG_6860IMG_6867IMG_6868

I finished my hike with a few more pictures.

Then I hooked over to Bethlehem, grabbed some food and walked some more.  Because, hiking isn’t walking is it?

I was still working on the patterns challenge (see previous post) and found a few on this short, but satisfying walk through this cute town. 

Prospect Mountain–7-16-2019

I got rained on.  I drove to the top of the area, intent on taking a few pics and then – downpour!

I never got to hike. 

IMG_6805IMG_6807IMG_6796IMG_6797IMG_6798IMG_6800IMG_6802IMG_6803

The tower was worth the drive to be honest, fun place!  And a few great pictures as well.

I’ll have to go back and hike the trails – on a day that it isn’t going to rain.

Mt Pemigewasset 6-24-2019

Monday afternoon hike!  It wasn’t to hot, but boy the flies were killer!  And I had a ton of bug spray on too.

IMG_6107IMG_6078IMG_6081IMG_6098IMG_6100IMG_6103IMG_6101IMG_6102

The views were worth the trudge thru the sometimes mud, the swarms of flies, and the heat. 

IMG_6112IMG_6108IMG_6109IMG_6110IMG_6111IMG_6119

I had a weeee bit of fun with the lens ball.  It’s a cool thing to carry around.  I will, at some point, figure out how to flip the image, but I rather like it upright.

Someone lost a pair of sunglasses.  It became a prop!

Castle In The Clouds–9-29-2018

My coworker, Wendy – an Littleton Native, keeps making the perfect suggestions for my weekend adventures!

This week it was Castle in the Clouds!

Here are my keys!  The light was odd in the gorge where the Fall of Song is.  However it was gorgeous and a quick hike to be honest.

A short hike, and some mushrooms later, I found the Bridal Veil.  Which was fun to photograph as well. 

Did I mention Mushrooms?

After an awesome lunch (soup and a salad) In the sun on the patio, off to the house I went.  Of course, I took pictures of the view – hello!

Pictures do NOT do this place justice.  Oh, my goodness, massive and stuck “in time” so to speak.

I could have spent hours and hours taking photos of this place, I am glad I got there earlier in the day – the light was great, lovely shadows against the walls as well.

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.

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.

The Tram–Cannon Mountain

The Tram.  A little daunting for someone who has problems with elevation, due to my Meniere’s. 

I chewed gum and was fine.

The ride up was pretty easy, I had one young man ask me about my Green Arrow Key Chain, which led to a discussion, later, about if GA could still hit a target in the wind on the top of the mountain.

It’s a short hike to the “top” of the mountain and to the observation deck.  I did do one thing that day, I forgot my keys!

Damn it.

The most difficult part about taking pictures of mountains and clouds?  Giving it something to relate it to.  Hence trying to include close trees, or the view fingers.
