I drove through the Blair Bridge in Campton and snapped the shot below mid-way through.
This is one of the longest covered bridges in the area at just under 300 feet.
The second time I crossed a covered bridge today was to get to the next hole on the golf course.
I love the Red color of the Ivy growing up this Poplar tree...Chip and a put away.
The colors are going fast, Make it up by Columbus Day Weekend (18 comments)

...The Kancamagus scenic highway offers: foliage, fury and feathered friends - 09/25/10 03:43 PM
As I look across the street these trees struck me as being out of order...not the normal before and after shot. Nature has it's own way of changing the order of things it doesn't always conform to what we expect. My Real estate office is on the Kancamagus Scenic highway, and so are some of my fury and feathered friends, come to see the foliage and you may get more than you bargained for.
A little patriotic foliage, with the soon to be white ski slopes peaking out in the background.
The interesting part came upon further examination. You see there are several rocks embedded in the root, they have a strange hold on bolling ball size boulders. This tree didn't give in to the river easily, it fought to stay on the ground it called home. Now all that is left is the root carcass dried, bleached, and (16 comments)
Wordless Wednesday...first days of foliage - 09/22/10 09:59 AM
8:30am...The view from my bedroom Window. Sorry about the continued pond construction, 3 years of digging but someday the landscaping will be done. I often feel like one of the cobblers children...all the tools at my disposal and I can't get my own construction wrapped up. Enjoy the White Mountain Foliage views, Time for a trip to New Hampshire I would guess you have until Columbus day before the colors will be gone for the season.
A little rain the forecast, but I'll get some more shots on my hike today...It's my Saturday and I'm off to the flume (16 comments)
Golf side foliage and chased by a moose...tonight. - 09/21/10 09:29 PM
It's getting dark too early I couldn't complete 18 holes after work tonight...I was chased by a moose and got a bad shot of him, he way too far away by the time I found my camera I hope you can make him out it was pretty cool seeing a moose up really close. I did get some good shots of the beautiful leaves and the slow rolling river. You can't go out at 5:15 and get 18 in anymore this is the true signal fall has arrived.
The river was calm and (19 comments)
Fall foliage means Winter season rental inventory is slipping away at Loon Mt. - 09/21/10 10:30 AM
I get a kick out of the retailers who try to force consumers to buy early as if they will run out of inventory? I was in a local store over Labor day and they were putting out Halloween Candy...Really Come on!! But when it comes to the up-coming recreational season securing your home away from home...it is not to early. If you want a place for your family this winter act now, our Loon mountain area properties are running out and will all be gone soon!

Say it with pictures, we all take photos of our listings and put them in our multiple listing service…this is after all a requirement of the system. But, how many times have you asked yourself…these interior shots don’t tell the whole story? There is more to a structure than the bricks and sticks used to enclose a living space. The intangible location, is more than a real estate buzz word, I will try to make my point in the photos below. You will not see a building in these shots, these landscape pictures are taken near or on the listed (21 comments)

A shot from the ski area bridge of the condo...walk home after skiing. Price reduced on this 3 bedroom 3 bath Penthouse style condominium; it is different from most resort condos in the mountains. The builder was working with a small foot print but had additional land in the flood plain. This allowed a large scale building …but it had to be taller than anything previously built in the area. When demand was high, the location sold the site, but now with many more choices, it not as easy to convince a buyer a building like this should be (5 comments)

Loon Mountain area seasonal rental, white mountains New Hampshire - 09/12/10 10:54 AM
A bit off the beaten path this condominium offers a wonderful floor plan and is extremely affordable compared to units of this size closer to the slopes. Jack O'Lantern resort is a Golf side complex, offering Ski rentals 6 miles from Loon mtn. 15 miles from Waterville Valley and 14 miles from Cannon Mtn...ski resorts. Because there is no shuttle service to the mountain offered at many of the other "closer" resorts the price is a third less than places five miles away ($6,000 here Vs. $9,000 for a 3 bedroom & loft closer to Loon).

White Mountain waterside Wednesday. September photos in New Hampshire - 09/08/10 08:10 PM
I'm hoping that I have mowed my back field for the last time this year, it's a lot of work but I love the river view. I'm allowed to maintain my field down to the river as it's been this way since prior to the new shore land protection regulations...if this goes back to being wild (with trees or bushes taller than 3 feet) I will lose the right to cut the field in the future.

I was able to buy my home-site 10 years ago from the retired chairman of the Marcal paper mills. We became friends I have helped him sell off some of his old mill properties...I was happy to recycle this site. It took a lot of flood plain engineering, permits for the DOT as I have frontage on an existing train track, and Wet lands permits due to the river frontage...but it was worth all the work.

I deliberately left the window trim in this photo so you can see I took the shot through the Living room glass.
Truth in advertising: the place is a bit tired, it is 25+ years old...It needs new carpet, and the furniture is mostly not worth keeping unless you were going to use the property for rentals. The owners have updated the heating system (10 comments)

Don't fall asleep at the wheel hire a Realtor - 09/01/10 08:42 AM
I played golf last night the course runs along the Pemigewasset river in Woodstock New Hampshire. I observed this canoe trying to navigate a series of rapids, but the woman in the front was attempting to do the paddling while the male passenger took a nap. Apparently these folks miss the point of rowing together, in order to be effective the person in the back of the boat has to steer or you'll go in circles. If you are not going to work together you are better off going it alone.
