My friend Anna and I went up to New Hampshire this week for some easy hiking – and we only got lost three or four times, so score! It was gorgeous!
The view from the ledges at the top of the ledges – breathtaking!
Mountains framed by pine trees.
More pine trees – they smell so good! And more mountains!
Mountains and treetops. Fields of trees below!
The forest floor and fallen trees! The day was so bright and sunshine-y!
This is the river at the start of the hike. It was absolutely worth the drive alone!
A ledge! This hike went up about 1000 ft and there were lots of opportunities to climb up boulders and go off-trail (and get a little bit lost) which was so much fun!
A tall, tall tree.
I like to think of these as ghost leaves.
The forest! It was a gorgeous hike, a little more challenging than last week’s, but with spectacular views as a payoff. (Go right at the beginning of the trail to hit the ledges at the end, not the beginning.) There was lots of cool mushrooms, moss, lichen, a brook, and even a chipmunk or two! I was playing with my rented wide-angle lens so I didn’t get good shots of those, but trust me, there’s so much more to see than I was able to capture here!
