Pedal Through the Notch

Last weekend we wanted to go for a bike ride.  Alden has, just this spring, figured out how much fun bike riding is and we wanted to give him the experience of riding a long distance, instead of just circling around in our dirt driveway.  He hasn’t quite mastered going down hills and using his…

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…

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…

Train on the Mountain

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…

Boardwalks and Beaver Dam

A few weeks ago, we decided to take a hike on the Slide Brook Trail which is part of the Cohos Trail.  We wanted to check out a relocated section on the Slide Brook Trail that runs through the southeast corner of Pondicherry National Wildlife Refuge.  When we first checked this trail out a few years…
