October Photo of the Day 10.8.21

I drove over to the Ocean Path for sunrise this morning. Parking in the Gorham Mountain Trailhead parking lot, I walked a short distance to a perfect overlook. To my south was Otter Cliffs and, to my north, the Great Head peninsula jutted out… Continue Reading “October Photo of the Day 10.8.21”
