At the end of July, my wife and I spent a few days in New Hampshire. We spent 2 nights in Henniker and revisited the NH Telephone Museum to see the new Locomotive Communications Exhibit.
I also photographed the Dalton Covered Bridge in Warner for my Website. We stayed at the Tall Pines Cabins in Henniker and would highly recommend it.
The highlight of the Warner trip was the new exhibit about trains and especially the wandering Mail Dog OWNEY. Although a sad ending, it is an amazing story about a very independent pooch.
On Saturday and Sunday, we stayed at the Wilderness Cabins on Bear Notch Road and drove up to Berlin and Stark to photograph more Covered Bridges and Veterans Memorials.
It was nice to add more photos of NH Veterans Memorials. I uploaded the Northumberland (Groveton) Memorials photos to the Groveton FB Page and was pleased when a woman saw her Dad’s name on the WWII Memorial.
The Memorials Page recently helped me reach my fundraising goal for the Boston Red Sox Run to Home Base event for Veterans with PTSD. A representative from the Memorial Day Foundation sponsored me because he wants to use my photos for his website. Their goal is to document all Veterans Memorials in the USA – quite a task.
On the way back from Berlin, we stopped at the Willey House site in Crawford Notch. Although the Gift Shop was closed (really missed the Best Ice Cream in Crawford Notch), the museum was open and I chatted with a direct descendant of the Willey family.
I ended up taking about 1000 photographs with my new Canon Camera and added a lot to my website.
Check out some of Richard’s pictures from his recent trip on his website, as well as the many other pictures of NH he has to offer!
