October Photo of the Day 10.5.21

I watched this little beauty moving around from plant to plant while hiking along the Ocean Path near Otter Point. At first, I thought it was a Painted Lady butterfly. But, doing some research, I realized that the little white spot in the orange… Continue Reading “October Photo of the Day 10.5.21”

Gorham Mt. View

Yesterday after work I had time to do one of my favorite short hikes – a 4 mile round-trip trek – up Gorham Mountain from my campsite. As I was descending the summit, I caught sight of this lone sailboat (minus the sails!) slowly… Continue Reading “Gorham Mt. View”

With company over the past week, it’s been hard to find time to post. So, you get two-in-one today! Jim and I hiked part way up Beech Mountain last night to try and catch the sunset. The trail that winds up the mountain high… Continue Reading “Photo a Day 7.28.21”
