Weekly Video/Photo

If you regularly follow my blog, and the weekly/video photo I would recommend skipping on to paragraph three, specific to this week’s video/photo.  I have decided to add a weekly video/photo section to my blog.  This blog will display a video or photo, usually highlighting an Adventure, while I might also sneak in some that are humorous, adorable, or just other fun dog moments.

So if you have followed my blog from the beginning you will know that I adopted Shadow as a puppy, and about a year later adopted Buster as a puppy.  We had many wonderful years together before experiencing the devastating loss of Buster at just seven.  It took a long time for our hearts to heal, but almost a year later we welcomed little Wilma into our world.

So today’s feature is a scenic photograph from a summer weekend in the White Mountains.  Shadow, Wilma, and I had the amazing opportunity to work at an Inn on weekends last summer.  We explored, explored, explored!  This photograph was taken in an area near the AMC Highland Center in Bretton Woods, New Hampshire.  The flowers were gorgeous and the background scenic.  One of my favorite spots in New England is the White Mountains, and this photo captures one of our many special memories.

Other short hikes I have blogged about that started at the AMC Higland Center include:  the Ammonoosuc Lake Trail and the Red Bench Trail, Beecher and Pearl Cascades, and the Lake Saco Trail.  These are especially great hikes if you are new to hiking or hike alone.  You can search for these blogs by typing the name in on my “search box”.  On a mobile phone you can find this at the very bottom of the page, and on the computer you can find it to the right of the blog.  You might see it in the midst of some outside advertisements.  The AMC is a great resource and has NUMEROUS other hikes that you can explore.

Enjoy the flowers!

June 30, 2018 – New Hampshire – Lake Saco Trail

Today one of our adventures was to the Lake Saco Trail in Carroll, New Hampshire.  This was our second time visiting the Lake Saco Trail.  The Lake Saco trail is a short trail, bordering Lake Saco, and is located in the White Mountain National Forest.

When we arrived at the Trail we found that flowing water had overtaken the beginning of the Trail, appearing like a shallow stream.  Apparently I did not have my water proof hiking boots, but we sure did not let that stop us on our adventure.  We continued on, and journeyed to the dry portion of the trail, which included large boulders, fun little bridges, and gorgeous mountain views.  I observed the mountains reflecting onto the water, just so picturesque.  One of the bridges we encountered had actually collapsed, but I humored myself in still trying to traverse it.  After a little wobbling, and a lot of encouragement for Shadow, we made it across.  The trail mostly followed the water’s edge before merging into the forest.  Simple, short, yet just so beautiful.  The only thing that I do not like about this trail is that is sits just off the road, so the sounds of the highway slightly dampen the true nature experience.  I will include photos from both of our journey’s below (Rating:  4).
