Moose Crossing: Welcome to New Hampshire
After leaving Keene (see previous post), we drove another two hours up to Holderness to Alyssa’s family home. The foliage was amazing. People make fun of me, but you have to understand, I am from California and palm trees do not change color. We really don’t get much of a fall.
There is an old cemetery near Alyssa’s house right by the lake.
On a closer look, some of the of the grave stones had rather odd sayings. I was expecting the usual beloved mother etc. This stone read, “She has done what she could.” An interesting take on someone’s life…
I noticed this little flower growing near some of the headstones.
The lake near Alyssa’s house was beautiful and add some foliage to that and I was in heaven.
The next day we went for a drive and ended up at Weirs Beach on Lake Winnipesaukee. With a boardwalk and all, this is apparently a pretty hoping place in the summer. In the fall this area was deserted so it was a little eerie – especially the penny arcade with that typical carnival sounding music.
How cool would it be to have your mail delivered by boat?
The next day we all got up and decided it would fun to go on a hike and get a view of Squaw Lake.
The view from the top was beautiful. So much foliage.
We all made it to the top. And more importantly, we all made it back down again.
New Hampshire was a beautiful state to explore, especially the area around Holderness. Happy weekend everyone! It’s Homecoming weekend here at Wesleyan, so I will be sure to take some photos.
