New Hampshire for Leaf Peeping

One of the things we wanted to do while on the East Coast was to see leaves of different colors. Yeah, that’s pretty lame but having lived within five miles of the Pacific Ocean my entire life, it was something I wanted to see. We almost saw it two years ago. This time we drove up to New Hampshire to Flume Gorge, and we almost saw it the leaves change this time too.

While our trip to New  York to see leaves was a week too late to see the leaves change, this trip was probably about a week too early. Some of the trees were starting to turn, but they weren’t quite there just yet. Still it was nice to get out and see some of what nature has to offer.

I went hiking this weekend with Michelle and Angie. For those of you that don’t know me, write this down in case you ever want to abduct me, put me in a cryogenic chamber, and replace me with a robot. I do not hike. I have bad knees and am just overall lazy. I’m still glad I went even though I spent Monday sick at home. (It’s unrelated but I’ll still blame the hiking.)

Half way up the hill. Kind of a crappy day but the clouds were interesting.
