Trip to NH–10-10-2019

We took off to NH for a few days because I wanted Jules to see where I’ve been working for the better part of a year!

We didn’t stop much, but when we did it was gorgeous!

I dragged her to The Flume, we had a nice walk and took some great pictures.

We also drove down the Kanc and then up Crawford Notch.

Then one of the best sunsets I’ve seen in a while happened.  Overall, a great day!

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.

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.

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.

Bemis Brook–7-15-2019

I wanted a short hike after work, and this was it.  Just under 3 miles near Arethusa Falls.

  IMG_6729IMG_6719IMG_6722IMG_6723IMG_6727IMG_6728

As you can see, I got a new prop.  Wonder Woman! 

And my keys.

IMG_6750IMG_6752IMG_6731IMG_6736IMG_6740IMG_6743IMG_6747IMG_6748

What a fun little hike, and quiet.  Definitely somewhere I’d go again just for fun.

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!

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!

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!
