Landaff

Landaff has quite a history, twice its citizens voted to become part of Vermont. Luckily for us New Hampshirites, in 1781, when Vermont was about to become the 14th state, the Continental Congress told Vermont they had to relinquish all towns east of the Connecticut River and Landaff (along with 33 other towns) were “returned” to New Hampshire.

As I traveled around Landaff, I couldn’t help but admire its natural beauty…

It was early June when I visited and farmers were cutting the first hay of the season…

A simpler way of life is reflected in historic buildings…

The Scotland School 1858

There are several trails which lead into the White Mountain National Forest from Landaff. I started off on one of the trails, but gave up when I reached this point…

Clearly, others had gone on, but I wasn’t feeling so sure about the depth of the mud, even though Trouble has now been fitted with a hood mounted jack ( the winch was already part of Trouble’s attire)…

I stopped to admire the stonework being done on this foundation…

I’d love to see it once it’s finished!

I’ve done something a little different with my last Landaff image. Earlier this year, my friend Martha over at Therapeutic Misadventures got a new camera. Using an in camera setting, she made her images appear to be watercolors. The results were simply lovely. My camera doesn’t have an artistic setting like that, so I used an editing program. Not watercolor, but artistic…

      Thank you. It was really interesting to read about the history and the famous people who came from Landaff.

    Love the green and wide open spaces. Looks like your vehicle is ready for most anything!

    What great scenery up there. I don’t think I would have followed that muddy trail either!

      If I hadn’t been by myself, I totally would have!

    Beautiful, simple architecture, Laura. I wonder what the spike on the front of the yellow building was for? It also looks like some lovely ponds and lakes. Glad Trouble is getting around OK these days and giving some great trails to follow.

      I think it may have been an old wooden flagpole. I sure was wishing for my kayak!

    Experience tells me mud is almost always trickier than it looks. Wise to stop I think.

I'd love to know what you think!
