Lantern Hill Foliage hike

Joe and I take a hike up Lantern Hill at least once or twice a year. I have a past blog that tells about the history of Lantern Hill. (Lantern Hill 2009) This year we hiked up there with my sister and her hubby. Here is a link to her blog from the day. Dawn's Blog She also has great info about Lantern Hill and it's history. The Foliage was spectacular that day and the weather was not sunny but perfect as far as the temperature goes.

On a clear day you can see the Ocean. I zoomed with my camera.

Bonfire and Burning of the past October 23 2010

We had an end of the year bonfire at my sister and brother in laws house this past weekend. Along with enjoying the company of my family, good food and spirits, we burned some of our documents, bills and paperwork of the past. While Joe and I only brought one small Tupperware container over, my other brother in law had at least 3 big garbage bags full. It was quite fun examining some of the paperwork from the past and also crumpling them up just right so they didn't float up as fiery little air bombs. At the end of our few hours of burning my bil had to break out his leaf blower to blow the ash into the grass..

Foilage weekend in New Hampshire

Joe and I had such a great time August in New Hampshire that we decided to stay overnight in October to see the foliage. We arrived Columbus weekend Sunday afternoon and took a wonderful hike up Mt Pemigewasset (Indian Head) Summit. The next day (Columbus Day) We went to Lincoln for breakfast and a craft show before heading home the scenic route on the Kancamagus highway.
