Like a Tourist



There's a reason tourists visit northern NH this time of year. It's pretty darn beautiful.


Sunday was overcast with the occasional drizzle. It's the sort of day most tourists stay home. For me, it was a perfect day to go for a drive.

My lovely wife and I Drove a loop through parts of Coos County. We even stopped for a coffee in Colebrook NH.

All in all, not a bad way to spend a Sunday afternoon.


How's this for a place to hole up during the zombie apocolapse?

When we got home I gathered up some lumber scraps and fired up the wood cookstove. It took the dampness out of the house, heated water for tea and warmed up a pizza. It's been too warm to run the woodstove all the time, but running it for a few hours a day works out fine.

    1. There's no sense in living here if I don't take the time to enjoy the beauty of it now and then.

  2. It is quite beautiful. Looks rather rocky and hilly.
    I lived in Coos County for many years.
    Coos County Oregon. So named for the Coos Indian tribe. I lived in Coos Bay and graduated high school there.
    We both grew up around mills too. Strange coincidences.

    1. It is beautiful. Lots of forest. Coos County NH is named after an Algonquian word meaning "small pines".

      I love these hills.

  4. Where did you stop for coffee? Moose Muck, The Wilderness or Dunkin' Donuts? If you grabbed it at the deli at the IGA and paid for it up front, I was probably your cashier! Yup...Colebrook is home!

  5. Loved the Fall colors in the hills and mountains of Pennsylvania, where I lived the first half of my life. Down here all the trees don't change colors at the same time and some don't change at all.
