Hinsdale

Hinsdale-6599

Hinsdale is a very quiet little town. I knew about the license plate house before I left and was quite happy to find it on the main road. I don’t know how long it took the owner to find all of those license plates, but it is neat to see. They appear to be from all over the place and create a colorful appearance.

As is common this time of year, many of the roads I wanted to travel turned out to be Class VI roads, meaning they are not maintained. More than once, Steve and I had to turn around!

There was a lovely snow covered pond on one road, with a beautiful view of the mountain on the far shore…

I’m sure birds love to perch on the dead tree.

And the remains of the fir tree was kind of neat with only the cones left on the end of the branches. As we were driving down another road, we came across some sort of culvert or drain. What caught my attention was the rocks stacked up in the middle, at one time they had been painted blue. I don’t know what their function is, but I doubt it is structural…

We saw several bright red barns. this one really stood out against the white snow…

There is plenty to do in Hinsdale, as far as outdoor recreation goes. Pisgah State Park and Wantastiquet Mountian Natural Area border Hinsdale and offer hiking, fishing, boating, snowmobiling and cross-country skiing.

To learn more about Hinsdale, visit the town’s website or the state’s website.

    I’ve never been to Hinsdale though it isn’t far from my home. Love the license plate house. Your red barn photo is so New England!

      The barn really showed up with the bare trees and the snow cover. I’d love to know how long it took to collect all of those license plates!

    I used to fish a lot in the Connecticut River in Hindsdale and I wish I could remember exactly where that spot is!
    You can see stone culverts just like that one on the Gulf Road leading to Madame Sherrie’s castle in Chesterfield. I’ve never seen one outside of that town, so it’s interesting to see one in Hindsdale.

      Do you know the reason for the stones in the culvert?

    The licence plate house is amusing and I’m intrigued by the blue painted stones. The snow is lovely to look at but I don’t envy you the cold.

      Yes, if snow were nice and warm, it would be beautiful!

I'd love to know what you think!
