1/31/23 Hiking Down Quechee Gorge

Location: Quechee, Vermont

Date: 01/31/23

This certainly isn’t a long or arduous hike: maybe a mile overall, more if you explore some of the other trails here. The hike down to the bottom of the gorge is around a half-mile, and just over 150 feet down. The trail runs along the river, and there is a fence protecting you from a fall (which will likely be lethal). Well traveled on weekends in the winter (I would imagine… I had the place to myself on a Tuesday, but it was cold), and pretty icy.

Connecticut River – Last Kayak of the Season (?)

Location: Woodsville, NH

Date: 11/11/22

Pretty much the last day of the season for it, unless it gets warmer sometime soon (it’s the 22nd now, and I think we had lows in the single digits a couple of nights ago). All the boats are now bedded down, but never say never. I’m really tempted to bring one up to Maine over Thanksgiving. 🙂

White Mountains in New Hampshire, 10/1/22

Locations: White Mountains, NH

Date: 9/30/22-10/1/22

A few shots from various locations in the White Mountains. Foliage still seems a bit early, but it’s looking nice out there, particularly the further north and higher up you get. First, a panoramic shot of the Omni Mount Washington, which is sooooooo wide I’m not sure how useful it is, but it’s kind of cool. You should be able to click on it to make it full-sized.

 

And a few random shots:

Ripley Falls Winter Hiking, 04/06/22

Location: Hart’s Location, NH

Date: 4/6/22

They list it as a moderate hike, but honestly, there isn’t much in the way of difficulty here. It’s probably best to avoid it after a snowfall, as a section of it runs right along a steep ridge (the AllTrails comment about a ski pole going right through and finding air gave me some pause). Very short – one mile out and back – but the falls definitely makes it worth it. The whole area out on the Crawford Notch Rd. (before you hit Attitash) is gorgeous, with many trails and trailheads.

Hiking the Flume Gorge, 3/26/22

Location: Lincoln, NH

Date: 3/26/22

Heavily trafficked in the summer (and fairly expensive to get in), the Flume Gorge is incredible in the winter. Definitely a must-hit if you find yourself in the Franconia corridor in the winter (crampons are a must, however). A bit late in the season, but the snow pack was still lighter than it usually is in late March.

Stray Vermont foliage pictures 2021

I actually got out a bit this year and experienced the yearly local phenom, foliage. I usually had the GoPro with me, but I did manage to snag a few decent pictures locally with my Nikon. As always, feel free to use these non-commercially as you wish so long as you link back to my homepage, www.rwaynegray.com. Thanks!

Groton, Vermont’s Boulder Beach may be cold for swimming come October, but the foliage is gorgeous.

Kayaking on the Waits River, Bradford, Vermont 9/13/21

Kayaking the “affluence” in Bradford, Vermont. It’s basically where the Waits River meets the Connecticut River. Great location for bird watching in the summer, with ducks, heron. I’ve even seen a deer here midday (I have a picture somewhere, will upload it eventually). Mid-September is a bit late in the season, but still a great kayak with channels and a nice Hitchcock moment about halfway through.

Sabbaday Falls

Location: Conway, NH

Date: 1/18/21

Located on the Kancamagus Highway in NH, this is an easy .7 out and back trail that leads to a waterfall. There’s also a longer loop trail you can take. Crampons are recommended for the winter, and note that part of the trail is closed off over the falls. The fourth shot is of the Pemigewasset Overlook, a few miles to the east.
