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 […]

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.) Not many roads equates to not many houses, most of the properties in Ellsworth are camps. The […]
