I feel like I was remiss this summer at exploring New Hampshire. There are tons of fun, inexpensive outdoorsy things to do around here and we didn’t do any of them. Maybe because I’m not outdoorsy.
But this past weekend, we ventured out into the White Mountains of New Hampshire! Dave and I headed up to his parents’ house on Friday night. Saturday morning I helped split fire wood. For someone who is not outdoorsy, I do a lot of outdoorsy things at the Gernhards – split wood, move logs with an excavator, shoot guns (alright, I only shot a gun once…I don’t really like it), drive a dump truck. Supposedly these things are good for me since they shove me out of my comfort zone.
It was a gorgeous weekend – highs in the 80s Saturday, Sunday and even Monday. We left for the mountains around 11:30 since it did take awhile for it to really warm up and we went in the open air Jeep. It was very windy and quite chilly at first, but it was a great way to see the foliage and experience the mountains. I’m going to stop writing now and just post the pictures, because in this instance, a picture really is worth a thousand words.
We didn’t do any hiking while up in the White Mountains, but on Monday (Columbus Day) we met some friends at Mt. Major, which overlooks Lake Winnipesaukee. We hiked to the top and the view was amazing!
Who knows where we’ll go next!
