When we visited THE MUSEUM last year — exactly a year ago today — I was totally blown away by every facet of this lovely, amazing & beautifully maintained museum. Kudos. Bravo. Their flower display was a work of art worthy of a top-notch botanical gardens. I raved about it last year … see below.

Yesterday, on our way to hike Mount Kearsarge I made a point at stopping at this lovely museum. YES, IT IS OPEN. Alas, we didn’t go in. Both of us, I due to my age, are classed high-risk. So, we are doing our best to be responsible. Visiting an intimate museum didn’t, alack, fit the criteria.

But, we enjoyed the flowers & had a lovely chat with one of the volunteer gardeners.

The gardens are not as immaculately maintained as last year — for obvious reasons (& the heat wave has not helped).

But, it was LOVELY.

Nope. Never heard of ‘Bradford’. Don’t think I have ever driven through it. But, can’t be sure. I have been to Warner.

Nice place.

Part of the ‘Lake Sunapee’ crowd. NOT my Lake. I am Winnipesaukee all the way.

Well, I knew some of you would be curious. So, I wanted to give you a quick, easy overview. Obviously, Google for more.

I already raved about the astounding ‘Indian Museum‘. The amazing display of flowers that they had, all around the museum was something else. Wow. Such color. Such variety. Strategically planted, well tended. Feast for the senses. I loved them. As this blog will testify I am a bit of a connoisseur when it comes to lilies. So, when I tell you that this was the best showing of lilies I have seen in a very long time please take note. I am sure I have never seen some of the colors they had. Just a treat.

It really should be billed as ‘Mt. Kearsarge Indian Museum & Flower Display‘.

Alas and alack, the last day of my mini, 6-hours a day vacation in and around Concord, N.H. while Teischan was attending a one-week Summer ‘Art Camp’ at ‘Kimball Jenkins‘ in Concord. Rather than coming home after dropping her off (which would take me ~40 minutes), I opted to hang around the area, explore and get my usual exercise done. It has been awfully rewarding and I am so glad I am doing this rather than spending an additional 80-minutes driving back-and-forth.

Discovered ‘Rollings State Park’, in Warner, when we visited the excellent ‘Mt. Kearsarge Indian Museum‘ (on the same road, maybe 5-miles apart) on Tuesday. Didn’t have time to explore it Tuesday, so I went back today — and am I glad I did.

Quite the place. Not ‘Cadillac Mountain‘ (in terms of the views) BUT not bad at all, at all. I enjoyed it immensely.

Hiking to the summit (at 2,937′) from the parking lot, via the Rollins Trail, isn’t difficult (~0.6 mile and 300’ elevation gain). It is NOT, however, a walk in the park. Very rockey and, though it has been bone dry for 2.5 days, muddy. They need to get ATVs up there to service the cell tower. So, they have various mats and wooden bridges to facilitate this.

Once I did the summit, in order to get my 4-miles for the day, I hiked 1.5 miles down the auto road and then hiked back. That felt good.

Highly recommend this. Plan to go back. Probably spectacular in the fall with foliage.

Wow. I am kicking myself for not having gone before. A place that I have been meaning to visit for the last 15-years. Well, I am so, so glad that I finally made time to visit.

Exceeded all expectations. Blew me away. Not very prepossessing from the outside, but the inside is a veritable treasure of treasures. What a far-ranging, very well thought out, beautifully arranged collection. As some of you know, I am no stranger to ‘Native Indian’ people and culture and I have been to Indian museums (not to mention spend time in reservations) in Arizona and visited Plimoth Plantation a couple of years ago. I contend that this museum is far better than what they have at Plimoth.

Absolute credit to the founders and the current staff. They have done an astounding job. You have to visit. You will not be dissapointed.

I had no idea that the Indians did all this beautiful and intricate embroidery. I, given that most of my exposure is limited to the South West, was familiar with the weaving. Not delicate embroidery.

Yes, Indian museums make me SAD. To see what has been lost, what was surrendered, what was taken away.
