Leaf Peeping

We were lucky enough to be able to take a few nice day trips in the last couple of weeks. Notanseladams took some much deserved time off this month. We went to Florida for a crazy wedding and spent five days there. After coming home we decided to take a trip to North Conway of our favorite places in the world.

This is the trestle bridge at the entrance to our favorite place to camp. I have pictures of it in summer. We also ski in this area quite a bit so I have winter pictures,too. This is the first time we've been here in "leaf-peeping" season.

Notanseladams belongs in front of, not behind the camera, so here he is. Take note...I've told everyone...but this is the first time I've put it in writing. I want some of my ashes..when I'm be dumped off this bridge into the Sawyer and Saco River.

These natural stone steps are on the trail that leads into the camp area we have been going to for over twenty years. It's a hike-in camp area with platforms on which to set up tents. It's a beautiful place to be...the river is the perfect lullaby to go to sleep to. There are no facilities other than a single composting toilet.

Here is the outhouse containing that composting toilet. This is a fairly new building, maybe three years old , that replaced the old outhouse. It is a luxury suite compared to the old one!
Two years ago we spent a night in this lovely little building while bears tore up our tents and ate all our food. That's right...Notanseladams and I along with Evan and Ashley and two of her friends hid out in this building ALL NIGHT!
But that's a story for another time.
