New Hampshire in the Fall

NH leaves 3 (640x420)One of my favorite areas is the White Mountains of New Hampshire. We spent several days in the Lincoln area at the end of September. It is near the White Mountain National Forest and Franconia Notch State Park. There are lots of hiking trails, waterfalls and other beautiful scenery. Looking forward to returning again next fall.

The View from My Window

Autumn LeavesIf you spend much time with four or five-year-old little girls, you are certain to hear the phrase, “That is my favorite.” It may refer to food, colors, clothes, toys, animals or anything. As I was buying groceries last week, a dad asked his young daughter what type of peppers did she want. The little girl responded, “I like green peppers. That’s my favorite.”

If you asked my about what time of year I like best, I would say, “October, that is my favorite.” The weather is delightful, just cool enough for a light jacket or sweatshirt, summer haze is gone and we have clear blue skies, and the leaves on the trees go through an ever-changing display of colors.

Here are some photos from the woods surrounding our house. Too bad we cannot extend October and shorten January and February!

The Drive Home

Autumn LeavesDuring the summer, my drive home from work looks like this. The green leaves meet over the road to provide a feeling of driving through a green tunnel.

This time of the year, the green has changed to yellow, red, orange and all shades between. It is a delightful time to be out of doors and driving through the beautiful ever-changing woods.
