Scenes from This Morning's Peaked Mountain Hike.

Blue skies, warm sun, cool morning air, and a snowy but firm trail made for a wonderful morning on one of our favorite local peaks - Peaked Mountain. It offers great views of the Moats, Chocurua, the Ossippees, Whiteface, Passaconaway, and many of the Presidential peak, especially Mount Washington. It was a perfect morning hike that gave us enough time to get back to watch the Red Sox at noon. (Now if only they'd win a game.)

Good to get a dose of your insights and sights again. I just read that you'll be at Jabberwocky for the literary festival in a few weekends. Wishing you and Atticus the very best then and always.

Thanks, M.L.O. It was a great morning for photos.

Cindy, thank you for your sweet response. Hope life down in Hampton is good for you as spring slowly emerges from its cocoon.
