Giving Thanks

A unique edition of the Thanksgiving holiday – different yet somehow the same as we have spent for the past seven or so years (since acquiring Mittenstock). The five of us gathered at our little spot in the mountains for a dinner and associated traditions.  While for many, travel to family was cut out of […]

The changeover

Hard to think of snow on a day like today. November 7 and we had a high around 70 – the doors and windows were open wide at Mittenstock. Taking the opportunity to air out the house to bottom one more time. It was also time to do the changeover. Move summer gear into storage […]

I kinda stopped

I barely have enough to keep one blog going - let alone two. The starting of mymainelife has detracted COMPLETELY from my posting here. As a matter of fact it has been over a year since I posted an entry. I need to figure out the vector between the two outlets and commit. Anyway, back [...]

Oak Ridge

Chocorua is such a lens magnet – I purposely avoided it for a few frames. Oak ridge is in form – Strong orange band. Still lots of seasonal color to be had on this last weekend of October.

First Flakes

Snow on the rockpile today – We drove up to Pinkham the back way (Dundee) through Jackson. W was covered in clouds yesterday so we took the boys back to Foss this afternoon. So nice up there. So loving fall – So looking forward to winter!

Foss Mountain

The Foss Mountain surprise Crazy road to get out there but a short walk (just over half a mile) up a gentle grade to get to this magical spot in New Hampshire. Like I had done in the big media post a couple of days ago- I shot some panoramas. Thats a little one – […]

The bridge formed up this morning

A couple of nice shots if you like rainbows.

Drop the Bomb

Bomb Cyclone that is… We kept power both on the coast as well as here at Mittenstock. Internet was out on the coast, but compared to people looking at three days or more without power, we got lucky. The leaves are starting to fall – but plenty of color and grand seasonal views remain.   […]

Back to East Ledges

It has been a while. Some years in fact since we last dropped a rope on this great spot. A more magnificent setting for a day out climbing I can not imagine. Just under three miles up – it was a hump with the addition of ropes and a rack but the two seniors made […]

Back to Redstone

This time we scrambled up to the pink quarry – quite a climb actually. The scale is crazy and the views were fabulous with fall color in full bloom

Last call at the hut

Next time we get to have brews at the hut there will be snow on the ground. On Sunday we took the chair up for some views and brews. Crowds were large but tolerable. Everyone out in the sun having fun and making memories.
