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…

Rail Trail Walk

Valentine’s Ski

The temps might be cold, but if you bundle up, keep active, and stay in the woods, you can stay very comfortable.  For this adventure, Andrew and I went to explore the newest cross-country ski center in the White Mountains of New Hampshire: Ski Hearth Farm in Sugar Hill.  We learned about this place from an…

Sno-Mo Walk

The other day we were desperate to get outside for a short walk so we headed down to one of the closer snowmobile trails.  The snow wasn’t too deep and we knew that snowmobiles wouldn’t be on the trail, and we were excited to explore a new area in our hometown of Bethlehem.  We parked at…
