Easton

What Easton lacks in size (only 31.2 sq. miles), it more than makes up for in charm and beauty! I had driven through Easton probable hundreds of times and never knew it. Rt. 112 cuts through the lower corner of Easton. There are several wayside areas, picnic spots and trailheads along Rt. 112, but I was always on my way to camp. I never stopped to take in the scenery. ..

One of the biggest things I have learned while writing about these towns, is how much I have missed over the years. Driving along, I crossed what I think was Ham Branch. There was a parking area for hikers, but I was “moved” by the flowing water…

I saw a really neat building near a pond. Perhaps some kind of nautical themed screen house for enjoying the views…

Unfortunately, what I saw next, I can’t show you. I was way too slow with the camera! Just after I turned onto a side road, I bear cub crossed right in front of me. Had I been quicker, you would have gotten to see him stand up with his paws on a tree, look right at me, then scamper away. But, all was not lost on the wildlife front, I did watch this beaver make multiple trips with his mouth full of reeds…

Old and new barns were around every corner…

Next time I’m on my way to camp, I’ll be sure to stop and smell the flowers and take in all Easton has to offer!

    This seems to be the year of the bear! I have seen several out and about during the day, but like you, I never get the shot. You find some of the most fascinating spots that I have never heard of!

      We sooooo need a day of touring together! Miss you and your daily musings!

    Great images, Laura. Glad you decided to stop to check out this charming place. I thought the beaver shot was especially cute.

      Thanks you Robin. I definitely have learned to stop “passing through” on my way somewhere else. After all, it really is about the journey.

    I used to live in Easton, but it was Easton, Hants, UK. It was also very beautiful…

    • Touring NH September 9, 2016 at 6:21 pm #

      I’ll bet. Maybe someday I’ll get to see it!

      • Candia September 9, 2016 at 6:28 pm #

        Hope so!

    I wonder where the cub’s mother was. It’s probably a good thing you were in the Jeep.
    I’ve never heard of Easton but It’s obviously a beautiful place!

    • Touring NH September 9, 2016 at 9:54 pm #

      My guess is she was probably in the woods nearby, I just didn’t see her. Yes Easton is beautiful.

    Hi Laura – I saw your comment on Sue Slaght’s blog and thought I’d take a look at yours – and what a lovely surprise. Your photos are great! I shall be back. 🙂

    What a beautiful spot. That screen house by the pond looks like a great place to pass a lazy afternoon.

    • Touring NH September 12, 2016 at 8:48 pm #

      Love the shape of the screen house Very inventive.

    Perhaps it is a good thing that you didn’t see the bear cub for too long or you may have seen his Mama! Wonderful capture of the beaver at work. It does look like such a pretty place.

    • Touring NH September 16, 2016 at 2:47 pm #

      Thank you Sue. I’m sure Mama wasn’t too far away.I could have stayed and watched the beaver for hours. He certainly didn’t seem bothered by me.

    What beautiful scenery! I’m not sure I’d have been happy to run into a bear though, even a cub.

    • Touring NH September 17, 2016 at 9:54 am #

      This has been quite a year for bear sightings. I even had one on my deck.

I'd love to know what you think!
