Six photos each from walks to eight nearby spots (all in New Hampshire) between the end of March and the middle of April, during the global Covid-19 pandemic. I’m keeping a distance from any people I see and carrying a mask in my pocket in case I find myself too near others. #getoutdoors !
Northern Rail Trail, Andover NH, 28 March
Lyme Hill – Upper Valley Land Trust, Lyme NH, 4 April
I went here specifically looking for emerging hepatica. And found it! and more.
Bonus audio (volume up): birds and a few wood frogs (Lithobates sylvaticus) (and a car on Route 10 at the end)
Kezar Lake, Sutton, NH, 5 & 14 April
Clark Pond Trails, New London, NH, 6 April
Low Plains – Ester Currier Wildlife Management Area, 8 April
Bonus video (volume up): wood frogs singing up a storm.
Clark Lookout, New London, NH, 10 April
Fells Estate & Gardens, Newbury NH, 11 & 12 April
Knights Hill Nature Park, New London, NH, 15 April
One more bonus video, brook flowing over rocks:
Thanks for visiting these beautiful and fairly isolated spots with me — and for continuing to keep your physical distance.
Featured image: sneaking another photo from the alpine garden at The Fells, 11 April 2020.
Such a beautiful state we live in! I love New Hampshire’s rail trails. 😊
I’ve never been to New Hampshire but your photos and descriptions have brought it to me. Thanks!
Those are gorgeous photos! Thank you! I love virtual nature walks — no ticks.
No ticks IRL so far. Too bad I can’t take you on a virtual cruise.
Snow and ice; goodness. I was just sniveling about how late my summer vegetables are this year.
