Happy Halloween!

Happy Halloween!

Happy Halloween!!! Have fun celebrating tonight, especially if you end up going to Salem, MA! Dry up your tears surviving friends Mourn not for me, but for your sins! Die unto sin, but live to God! The grave must soon be your abode.

The Old Stones of New Salem

The Old Stones of New Salem

While others might go in search of ghosts during the month of October, we usually can be found in other places…though no less spooky: historic burial grounds and cemeteries. Luckily, New England is chock full of old stones!   There are 3 general designs being used during this time period: The winged death’s-head which began as very ornate and then became less elaborate. The winged cherub, which looks like a much more pleasant version of the death’s-head. Finally, somewhere near…

Autumn Fills the Air

Autumn Fills the Air

Yesterday, we decided to be tourists in our own backyard and join the crowds going to view the beautiful foliage of New Hampshire before it was too late.   We were blown away by the views!     After buying our tickets, we waited in line for only a little bit. There are two tram cars that take 80 people each in a ride that takes about 10 minutes each way to the 4,100-foot summit for views that can’t be beat….

The Buttonwood Inn

The Buttonwood Inn

Overlooking several mountains that make for wonderful hiking and skiing, the North Conway area is rife with places to dine and stay a week or a weekend.  We fought the Boston traffic for several hours to spend a weekend at the Buttonwood Inn.     Our room consisted of a huge sleeping area and a sitting area with its own gas powered fireplace.  The hardwood furniture and blonde plank hardwood floor created an airy ambiance that was inviting and relaxing…

Last hike of 2015

Last hike of 2015

We were lucky enough the other day to be able to get one last mountain hike in before 2015 came to a close at Kearsarge North in North Conway. Peaking out at 3,268 feet, it isn’t high enough to be a 4,000 footer but has a really steep climb in the middle. One of the newest experiences that we had on this hike was a large amount of ice along the route! Oddly enough, most of the ice was shaped…

Happy Halloween!

Happy Halloween!

Happy Halloween! Living in New England, we have the chance to be spooky almost all year round with our historic burial grounds scattered throughout the area (as long as the snow isn’t too high!). Here are some of my favorite photographs that I’ve taken at cemeteries this past month:   The Death’s Head is one of my most favorite images in the world. Watching it evolve from the simplistic circle with two dead eyes and a long nose over to…

Last Gasp of Beauty

Last Gasp of Beauty

As Autumn breathes one last gasp here in New England, I’ve been chasing foliage every chance I have been able to find. Though it is past peak in many parts of Northern New England, Central Massachusetts was exploding with color this last week. Taking advice from my cousin, Joe, I wandered off to the Quabbin Reservoir to see if I could find anything worthwhile. I was pleasantly surprised by not only the beauty of Boston’s water supply (more on that…

Delicious Autumn

Delicious Autumn

If you live in the New England area and have not gotten out to see the leaves, stop and drop everything. They are amazing this year and you owe it to yourself to go and watch one of the most spectacular death scenes in the world. Throughout New England, there are beautiful old trees that produce amazing color just hanging out in the town green or some lucky (for now) person’s back yard. Personally, I hate raking so I’m OK…

Foliage!

Foliage!

Now that it isn’t 90 plus degrees in Boston anymore, our thoughts are turning to pumpkins, cinnamon, and foliage! Visitors from all around the world have been coming to Boston looking for that perfect foliage picture to bring home. New England isn’t the only place to find amazing foliage, but might be the only place to find it while eating an apple cider donut* or 4. 😉 Check out these other awesome locations… Lexie from Steps to Follow found some…
