Autumn Signs in New Hampshire

Autumn is in the air and all around us.  Leaves are beginning to change color, others are drifting down in the wind.

 A large variety of fungi are also decorating the forest floor like this Crowned Clavaria on the left.

Covered bridges are a constant reminder of the rich rural history of the New England countryside.  Many tourists come just to see them just as they do the lighthouses on the coast and the many waterfalls in the mountains.
 This waterfall is the Glen Ellis Falls that plunges nearly 50 feet off the moss covered cliffs in the White Mountains National Forest.

We spent a couple days at Lake Winnipesaukee - the first day greeted us with beautiful sunshine, hundreds of boats on the water and people everywhere.  The next day was gray and rainy, all the people left for work and school - "What a difference a day makes".
 We spent a week in the White Mountains, the home of numerous wildlife including this Mama Moose and her hidden half grown calf outside the Dolly Copp campground where we spent 3 nights.

Here's Ida between a "rock and a hard place" resting from a three mile hike up the Boulder Trail to the Ledges with panoramic views of the White Mountains.

We are now in the Green Mountains of Vermont enjoying the last of summer in New England.

Blessing to all,
Ida & Ty
