November Afternoon

Thursday, November 11, 2019.  An unseasonable 65 degrees.  Eagles and ravens are calling across the water.

A Field Trip to Enfield (NH)

We were looking for someplace new to wander, and today we found Cole Pond in Enfield. The trail is a bit over a mile, climbing gently on a beautifully maintained trail. We had lunch by the pond. Not a sound but the wind in the trees and a blue jay. I will have to get back there when the waterbirds are migrating.

Rain, wind, and suddenly autumn is over and winter peace descends.  November on the pond is perfect.

The Mountain and I

Sometimes the mountain and I just walk around the Shindagan loop.

The true beauty of autumn

Sugar maples are flashy, with bright reds and yellows and tourists.  It is once they have all gone that the true, somber beauty of autumn shows up.

Green pines and spruces and hemlocks give a backdrop to the rusts and golds of the oaks, while the birches are yellow punctuation marks and the beeches (it seems like most of the roadside trees in Wilmot, NH are beeches) are yellow and gold and green all in one.
