I was quite happy to be out and about with the weather starting to turn spring like. I saw my first real sign of spring while I was in Francestown. In front of a lovely old farm house, I saw my first crocus of the year…


The snow melt has filled the streams and brooks to capacity. I found several places to set up my camera and capture the rushing water…






Even small ponds were overflowing…


Another welcome sight of spring was a pair of ring-necked ducks on Pleasant Pond…


In a field, I saw a gaggle of geese foraging…


I saw plenty of fields and wonderful old barns in Francestown…



I love the double silos

I love the double silos







And of course, you can’t have farms and fields without horses…


Crotched Mountain Resort has a great view of Crotched Mountain…


There are plenty of marshes and ponds to explore in Francestown…




My last stop in Francestown was the center of town…




I found plenty of reasons to visit Francestown and I hope I’ve shown you enough for you to make your own trip to visit this beautiful New Hampshire town.

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

      I was surprised too. There are 2 or 3 large ponds and quite a few brooks and streams. I want to go back and kayak on Pleasant Pond (taht is where I saw the ducks) ~Laura

        The boardwalk is also interesting. We don’t see many of those around here, but they use them a lot in the midwest. I think in New Hampshire we’re expected to just slog through it, rather than be elevated above it.

        It was clear that someone had really done quite a bit of work on the boardwalk. The path leading to it was raked and the entire area was all cleaned up. It is really nicely done. ~Laura

    Hi, Laura,
    I love that photo of of the double silo. I don’t think I’ve ever seen one like it. Also, you did a good job on Keene!

      Thank you Sandy. I saw 2 double silos in Francestown, I thought they were cool! I was glad to get the first city under my belt…Keene made it easy for me. ~Laura
