Moose Tracks and Coyote Scat

We had some important bike purchasing to do in Plymouth, NH at Rhino Bike Works on the weekend before last (get ready for some bike blogs!), and stopped off in the White Mountain National Forest for a short walk afterwards.  We decided to check out Peaked Hill Pond via the Peaked Hill Pond Trail.  The…

Littleton Views

A couple of weeks ago we headed over to Kilburn Crags in Littleton, NH.  We’ve lived in the area for a few years and this has been on our to-do list and we finally had the perfect day to go.  Parking is on Route 135 on the way from Littleton to Monroe, NH. The trail…

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…

White Rocks and Ferns

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

On the weekend before last,  we headed over to the Notch-Way Cross Country Ski Trail in Franconia, NH.  The northern trailhead is just off Route 141, while the southern trailhead can be found at Cannon Mountain.  With such a warm winter and little snowfall, we knew that we would be able to walk along the…
