A YouTube video. You really should watch.


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.

If you click on the GPS map (above) or just <here> you can read about my walk along the ‘Stickney Bike Path‘ and Turkey Pond. These are some of the pictures I took, with my Canon EOS RP, during that very enjoyable 2-jour jaunt. I wanted to share with you. Enjoy.

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.

As one of the pictures above shows you can see the ‘footbridge’ at the start of this trail from I-89. I have seen it hundreds of times but this was the first time I got off at Exit 3 (on I-89) and headed towards it. Until I checked my GPS map I had not realized, at all (at all), that this was two ponds connected by a large waterway. I thought it was a river. Not being a river explains why it was so, so still first thing when I got there.

Nice walk, but alas you heard the rumble from I-89 80% of the time until you get way down. But, still fun. I enjoyed it. Will be going back.

Didn’t see that many people. Just four walkers and maybe 5-bikes. But, this was mid-week, and unlike I most people go to work.

Check out the video. You should like it.

I felt privileged and blessed.
