North Country Scenics

19Oct10

Here are some scenics from the remote area near the town of Pittsburg, New Hampshire up in ‘Moose Alley’. We found the two vistas by talking to locals on two separate occasions. My motto is ‘it never hurts to ask’! There was no cell service in this area and only 3 places to get a bite to eat. One of the places closed at 7:00 which didn’t fit our schedule of trying to catch sunset and the second place was only open on the days we would not be there. We were happy that the one place that was open was quite cozy and affordable. When I asked a woman about the winters she said they were ‘long’ and that it usually started snowing around Halloween and didn’t show any signs of warming until Memorial Day. She said that winter was actually their busiest time as the area attracts many snowmobile enthusiasts. On our last day we drove up to a steep mountain to say goodbye to the area. We laughed when we saw a flag planted on top … like pictures we had seen from Mt. Everest.

    Thank you for looking. I have been shooting like a mad woman and there is a lot more to come. October is my favorite month but it just isn’t long enough so I need to cram it all in!

  4. “Lake Francis Morning” is IT!!! Beautiful. I’d be tempted to hang up my camera after a shot like that. I’ll not want to enter any competition where you enter that image!

  5. WOW… very organismic images.

    Lou — Had to look up ‘organismic’ because I wasn’t sure what it meant. Here is the definition:

    adjective
    1. of or relating to or belonging to an organism (considered as a whole); the organismic theory of the state;

    Is that a good thing???

  7. Well done. These are some amazing images.

  8. Denise, you are a gifted and talented photographer. Love the photo of Lake Francis. Wow!!!
