What an AMAZING Fall this has been in Central New Hampshire. The most vivid color in a many a year and I did use the singular there since this was a Fall dominated by red, red & more reds — all glorious. All these pictures were taken on Sunday, October 22, 2017 within 2-miles of our our house. Some of them are Locke Lake in Barnstead. The others are off a private property that I now have access to in terms of taking pictures. The owners called me at 9am to tell me to get up there are take some pictures! That was very kind of them. I didn’t need to be asked twice. The rain we will have this week will, alas, knock down most of the foliage. So, this could be close to the last hurrah, but rest assured, I will keep on snapping away. Enjoy.

I am still coming to terms with the focusing on this camera. There is NO focusing ring on the lens for manual focus! I have assigned the zoom on the lens to serve as my focusing control. But it is not as FINE as turning a lens. Interesting.

First pictures taken with a $39.90 refurbished Nikon Coolpix S3600
that I got yesterday from buydig.com.


While I know and appreciate that we, in Central New Hampshire, can get — and have had — snow fall well into May, this is a bit tedious. We had a lot of snow this year. Over 10 feet I think. This is annoying.

Where, or where is the Global Warming


The 1st ‘Real’ Storm Of Winter 2013 – 2014, December 14 – 15: Alton In New Hampshire Lakes Region Got 11″ Of Snow.

I used a tape measure to make sure. 11″ of not-too-light, not-t00-heavy snow.

But, we, perched halfway up Prospect Mountain, are ~660′ above sea level. That typically gives us about 3″ more snow than those in Alton that live ‘lower down’.

It wasn’t bad. We have seen worse. Devanee and I shoveled our escape path to the plowed road in an hour. That is all that matters. We can now get out in the van. The rest can wait.

It was good to be out doing some real shovelling. It is no secret that I like, maybe even LOVE, to shovel snow. To me it is THE PERFECT exercise: aerobic, full body, rewarding and with the chance to think.

It is still snowing lightly as I write. That is OK. I will be shovelling, rather than running up Prospect Mountain, for the next few days.

The snow was way too deep for poor, Braxton. I had to carry him.

So here are some pictures of the first ‘real’ storm of 2013-2014 in New Hampshire — Lakes Region.

I am piling up the snow, from my snow pusher, to create my annual Alton ski jump.
