Looking back through photos, it’s fun to see how the mountain has changed since June and how my perspective on it has also altered.
As we move towards peak foliage season, welcome to a miniature photographic tour of some of the things I love about Monadnock.
Hey folks,This weekend will be your last chance to see the end of the show for this season. There will be a few flowers here and there, but most of them are done for the year. This will also be my last posting for this season. I plan to pick it up again next June […]
