New Boston

It has been over 25 years since I lived in New Boston. Like so many other places I have lived, I never really explored very much. I knew about the obvious things such as Dodge’s Store… The Molly Stark Tavern… And the beautiful town common… . I also knew Route 13 follows the south branch […]

Franklin is the 3rd of the 13 cities in New Hampshire I have toured. From everything I have read,what makes a place a city, as opposed to a town, has something to do with how it was originally chartered and its form of local government. Franklin is the 9th largest city in New Hampshire and […]

One of the first neat places I came across in Wentworth was the Shin-Boku Nursery.¬† To highlight their design skills and featured trees, they have created a stroll garden. I had the grounds all to myself that morning and spent quite a while immersed in the peacefulness which comes from a Japanese style garden. Walk […]

The morning started of foggy with a light mist. I wasn’t too optimistic about the scenic vistas¬† I knew awaited me. But the fog and mist lent an eerie silence to the pond… When heading out to a new town, usually, I can predict what kinds of scenes I’m likely to encounter, but sometimes I […]

Looking at the map before heading out to Ellsworth confirmed what I thought I already knew. Since Ellsworth falls completely inside the boundary of the White Mountain National Forest, I wasn’t expecting too many roads (paved or otherwise.)

I doubt they could make a sign large enough to highlight all Sandwich has to offer! It has been nearly seven weeks since I was there, but Sandwich definitely made an […]

The town of Orange covers roughly 14,848 acres, over a 1/3 of which make up a good part of Cardigan Mountain State Park and Cardigan Mountain State Forest. It is a beautiful drive up Cardigan Mountain Rd to the trail head, parking and picnic area. Here is a link to the trail map. . . […]

I was driving along a dirt road, coming from Groton, unsure if I would know when I crossed the town line, when I found this lovely welcoming sign… Most of the time, when I am on back roads, all I see is the marker placed by the state. A vertical sign, green with white lettering […]

The next Lakes Region town to take my breath away was Grafton. It’s full of fun roads to drive, with names like Riddle Hill, Height of the Land, Razorhill and Tunnel Road. Roads that beckon you to take in all they have to offer… Grafton isn’t home to any of the larger area lakes, but […]

When I got back to Waldo after touring Danbury, I set about my usual routine. I began downloading all of the images I had captured, did a quick scan of them and deleted anything I knew at a glance didn’t portray what I intended. Some of them just didn’t come across equal to what I […]
