Sunset Home

We had a good night last night. Dinner was ready when I got home, and we ate quickly. After we donned hiking gear, and headed up the mountain. Recently I moved out of Manchester, back to the country where I belong. One are my days trying to dodge heroin needles, and angry glances of peopleContinue reading “Sunset Home”

By the Lakeside

I had the joy of hiking up to Lonesome Lake in Franconia Notch this weekend. It was an incredible day, and I took some amazing pictures. Winter is nice because it is quiet, and it many ways you get to enjoy nature in more of an organic way. You all seem to enjoy my picturesContinue reading “By the Lakeside”

The Little Things On North Pack.

Yesterday was a beautiful day in the Monadnock Region, and we finally got out on a hike. We chose to hike North Pack Monadnock, a mountain that is located close to our home. We left shortly before noon taking Teds Trail to Carolyn Trail. I have been up the mountain numerous times, but this routeContinue reading “The Little Things On North Pack.”

I think that’s why I love these places. Being in New Hampshire puts life into perspective.  I wasContinue reading “The Outdoors and Life Musings”

The Blue Pool

It is Winter, and snow falls around us as we make our way back to the parking lot. We have made our way on snowshoes around The Basin. We slowly made our way out, with me trailing behind. I find it hard to leave places like this. I love going into nature, and it isContinue reading “The Blue Pool”

Basin Ramblings

Last weekend my boyfriend and I ended up meandering up North. We stopped in Lincoln briefly before hitting 93 North again, headed towards Franconia Notch. I have always found it funny how people view northern New Hampshire. So many people “From Away” come to Lincoln. For many more their journeys ends there in what theyContinue reading “Basin Ramblings”
