In the past six years, my dogs and I have seen a lot of this country. I take a lot of photos when I travel and my favorites are usually the shots with my border collie mixes Bowie and Dio (short for D.O.G.). Without the dogs, it’s just a pretty picture, but with them it’s a place I’ve been, a place I know and love. From time to time I’ll post some of my favorite photos on here from my travels with Bowie and D.O.G. Today: New Hampshire!
Last fall, I took ten days to make the drive from Pennsylvania to Maine – a 10-hour trip via the interstate. Three of those days were spent climbing three mountains, back to back to back: Mount Cardigan (3,121 feet), Mount Moosilauke (4,802 feet) and Mount Washington (6,288 feet). Fall is always my favorite hiking season and after a few years in the coniferous West, I was jonesing for some real East coast fall foliage. New Hampshire’s White Mountains proved to be a glorious fix!
