White Rocks and Ferns

Last weekend, we headed out midday with plans for strawberry picking and hiking.  We stopped at Ski Hearth Farm in Sugar Hill, NH for some strawberry picking.  The picking wasn’t too good this year and we struggled to fill 2 half pints.  This farm also has some great cross country ski trails that we’ve blogged (Valentine’s Ski) about…

Bog Blog

We took a Father’s Day hike today at Quincy Bog Natural Area in Rumney, NH.  This place is a hidden gem and the perfect place to take a walk and enjoy nature.  We packed up our bags mid morning with snacks and took the 50 min drive to Rumney.  The Bog is just a short…

Lunch with a View

A few days ago Lindsay and Alden headed out for an adventure in Pondicherry Wildlife Refuge.  We parked at the small lot on Airport Road (Hazen Road) off Route 115 in Twin Mountain, NH. We’ve been here before many times and blogged about our walk a couple of years ago: Mosquito Walk.  There were several other cars…

Notch Way Walk

Georgiana Falls

We are a little behind with getting this blog post out, but we were busy with holidays and just life in general.  However, we really wanted to blog about this outdoor adventure because Andrew and Lindsay got a day away to get out on our own (without a 2 year old in tow).  Since we…

Big Rocks and a Bridge

A few weeks ago, our little family headed to a popular summer hiking spot: The Flume in Franconia State Park.  This time of year the trail through the Flume is closed due to dangerous ice that develops through the notch.  Rangers even remove the boards and steps that thousands of tourists walk on in the warmer…
