It may be mid-March but there’s PLENTY of snow left on the ground for some skiing!
Look! It’s the happiest couple on skis!
We were beginning to think the final ski of 2015 season happened last March!
While studying our spiffy new New Hampshire map, I noticed a curious patch of the White Mountains called the “Hubbard Brook Experimental Forest”. And I was like, “WHAT? An experimental forest just a few miles from our house? This is a situation requiring some first-hand investigation…”
Happily, there are incredibly wide and impeccably maintained roads that head back into the wilderness for miles. And they welcome non-motorized use — so, SKIING!
Did it rain on us all day? Yeah. Did we care at all? Nope.
Today we discovered an incredible group of waterfalls, a magnificent glassy pond created by beavers, and that in an emergency, Zorro can swim like Michael Phelps.
This afternoon we took the dogs up Beebe River Road to that wonderful meadow. Fletcher practiced his superior frisbee skills and fun was had by all.
We stopped on the historic Bump bridge for a quick photo with Ruby Jean.
On the way home, we spotted an interesting trail. We unloaded and started to explore it as as a future XC skiing option, but due to recent logging projects, it’s been closed.
