Lone Oak on a Hill Hike

Last weekend, Andrew found a fun place for all of us to hike that he remembered reading about on 1 Happy Hiker’s blog: Lackie Lone Oak Trail.  This private property is under conservation easement with the Upper Valley Land Trust in Bath, NH.  There is parking for 1-2 cars off Abbott Ave (which is off of 135) next…

Fox Hill Fun

Last weekend we headed out on a beautifully sunny day for a hike at Fox Hill Park in Franconia, NH.  The park is maintained by the Franconia Conservation Commission and can easily be found on Dow Ave off of Route 18.  We’ve hiked here before and blogged about it (Fox Hill), but we checked out a few…

Ski, Snowshoe, and Sled

On the eve of a big snowstorm (we’re expecting 16″-20″ of snow tomorrow!) we finally got around to blogging about our fun time at the Nansen Ski Club’s Warming Hut Grand Opening.   The Nansen Ski Club is America’s oldest ski club.  Yup, you heard that right.  The oldest and longest running ski club is…

Littleton Views

Train on the Mountain

You would think that a blog post about a train would involve Alden or at least Andrew, but it’s just Lindsay this time.  I volunteer for VRAP (Volunteer River Assessment Program) on the Ammonoosuc River (I did it on the Androscoggin River for many years too).  The other day was our last test of the…

Highest Point in Maine

As part of our Baxter Trip, Lindsay and her Aunt Jean, climbed Mount Katahdin.  You can read about the rest of our trip in Too Many Mice, Not Enough Moose.  Jean has been section hiking the Appalachian Trail, so we wanted to hike this trail up the mountain.  Lindsay had hiked this mountain many years…
