I already raved about the astounding ‘Indian Museum‘. The amazing display of flowers that they had, all around the museum was something else. Wow. Such color. Such variety. Strategically planted, well tended. Feast for the senses. I loved them. As this blog will testify I am a bit of a connoisseur when it comes to lilies. So, when I tell you that this was the best showing of lilies I have seen in a very long time please take note. I am sure I have never seen some of the colors they had. Just a treat.

It really should be billed as ‘Mt. Kearsarge Indian Museum & Flower Display‘.

Alas and alack, the last day of my mini, 6-hours a day vacation in and around Concord, N.H. while Teischan was attending a one-week Summer ‘Art Camp’ at ‘Kimball Jenkins‘ in Concord. Rather than coming home after dropping her off (which would take me ~40 minutes), I opted to hang around the area, explore and get my usual exercise done. It has been awfully rewarding and I am so glad I am doing this rather than spending an additional 80-minutes driving back-and-forth.

Discovered ‘Rollings State Park’, in Warner, when we visited the excellent ‘Mt. Kearsarge Indian Museum‘ (on the same road, maybe 5-miles apart) on Tuesday. Didn’t have time to explore it Tuesday, so I went back today — and am I glad I did.

Quite the place. Not ‘Cadillac Mountain‘ (in terms of the views) BUT not bad at all, at all. I enjoyed it immensely.

Hiking to the summit (at 2,937′) from the parking lot, via the Rollins Trail, isn’t difficult (~0.6 mile and 300’ elevation gain). It is NOT, however, a walk in the park. Very rockey and, though it has been bone dry for 2.5 days, muddy. They need to get ATVs up there to service the cell tower. So, they have various mats and wooden bridges to facilitate this.

Once I did the summit, in order to get my 4-miles for the day, I hiked 1.5 miles down the auto road and then hiked back. That felt good.

Highly recommend this. Plan to go back. Probably spectacular in the fall with foliage.
