Colors That New Hampshire and Japan Share
The peak time of year
Each September and October people from all over the world come to New Hampshire to see the fall foliage and take a foliage tour. Only two places in the world, New Hampshire and we’re told parts of Japan, have the unique combination of climate and topography that results in this brilliant foliage, but nowhere does the landscape, from mountains to the lakes and sea, provide a better vantage point to see the colors.
....weekend should set tourism record
And so we set out early this morning, to drive up into the north country and check out some colors that make New Hampshire so sought out at this time of year. Yes I also had to check some contacts and see about getting some new supplies of wood slabs, for some table tops that I’m thinking about producing, for a new gallery that I’m working with for some of my furniture and ‘wood art’. Now lets see, New Hampshire….New Gallery….and….New Wood Source, sounds very good to me! Anyways, picked up two slabs from two sources, but more on that to come when I get a chance to post some pictures of the wood….one cherry and one in pine.
So I am en-raptured by the color that so surrounds me this time of year and when I think of the folks that pay to come here….where I live, I can only give thanks….
....I mean, is this color or is this color, stoped here as we were headed toward Errol, NH....
....so back in the drivers seat and on down the road my wife and I are moving again….toward Dixville Notch....
....yes, these are awesome indeed….
....and then I heard the rock say; “come closer”....
....of course we could just go and have a climb….
....back on the road again and after lunch found us up around Colebrook, NH where I came upon this early barn….
....now one must understand that not only am I a lover of old barns, but of cupola’s also….
....and so went my day….and what a joy it is to be alive and able to experience the all that ‘just is’....
”....work smart, work safe, and live, to work the wood….”
