Littleton, New Hampshire

If you're a New Englander then you've heard the saying, "if you don't like the weather just wait a minute". The northern towns around the White Mountains in New Hampshire probably understand the concept behind that old blurb. It was sunny that day, but when we left a nearby general store to return to our car, this is what we saw in the sky. A few miles up the road it was spitting some sleet and rain on our windshield, and then it was sunny once again. On past trips we've driven through sun, wind, rain and snow on the same ride. We've had storms follow us along the road and we've seen snow on the mountains as we gawk at the scenery while wearing t-shirts and soaking up the sun. When I get back from a northern New Hampshire/Vermont trip people always ask about the weather, and that always means a long answer.

About Me

My photo
Hi, and welcome to my blog! In my working life I'm a cook, and in my personal life I'm married and have two daughters, plus a Chihuahua named Minnie. I am also a culinary school graduate with a degree in pastry arts. When I have a day off the first thing I think about is getting my camera and hitting the road. I've always loved road trips and I've been carrying a camera since I got a 110 Instamatic for my birthday when I was a kid. So, we get in the car and travel all over seeking out new back roads and new places to visit. At least twice a year we head up to the Northeast Kingdom in Vermont and take in some of the best scenery New England has to offer, and we get to New Hampshire, too. We also do some shorter trips to Rhode Island, Massachusetts, and sometimes even New York state (although it's not in New England) and once in a blue moon, we get to Maine. When I'm not on the road I'm right here at home reading, writing, watching some classic television like Andy Griffith, or Minnie and I are out strolling in the cemeteries enjoying the art and remembering the people.
