Woodstock, NH, riverview


Today my husband and I made the 2 hour trip up to the Lincoln, NH area. On the way we took a side road through Woodstock, NH. It was a fluke thing, asking my husband to turn around so we could 'take that little road back there'. I'm SO glad we did!




That little road turned out to be route 175 which runs along side Route 93. It's a nice scenic drive. I'm always a big fan of the road less traveled.







Wouldn't it have been perfect if the train were on the tressel? Now THAT would have been a picture! Sorry, I couldn't wait that long.







As you can see the foliage in the area was pretty much at peak




Hey, there's that train!

Actually I thought I saw the light through the trees as we were coming down the road. As hard as I tried, I literally had a second to get the shot. My camera wasn't on the right setting so it ended up a bit blurry since the car was moving. Oh well. Maybe next time.





Directly across the street from the river sat a home decorated for fall. I'll bet the lights on the fence are pretty at night. Living across the street from such a beautiful river must be nice, but it's so remote that I just couldn't handle it.

I hope to share more photos from our trip very soon.

Oh! these are just stunning photos! What gorgeous fall scenery. Our trees are peeking now too but not as pretty this year. We've been enjoying some beautiful sunny (and hot) weather here. Love it! I love the pumpkins on the fence posts! Pamela

Love the autumn photos! We aren't in Indian summer here in Phoenix; still summer (Ugh). How I wish I could see some of that color.

These are gorgeous! I will definitely be coming back here today to look at these again and again! SO glad you took that side road.

The foliage is great there! I went through Woodstock NH a couple weeks ago on our way to Mt. Washington. Love how you barely caught the train. Don't you hate those sudden moments where you have only a second to get a photo and your camera settings are wrong? That's the story of my life.... ha

Beautiful. The color here is not close to peak yet, so I'm patiently waiting.

JeannetteLS said...

I could not make it to New Hampshire this year, so I can live vicariously through your beautiful pictures. We barely have a hint of color in CT...

Laura said...

Gloriously beautiful pictures, Sharon! Maybe you can photoshop in that train - LOL!

Elaine said...

Wow, beautiful color! So glad you took the road less traveled.

I can't wait for peak color to reach us here in Boston!

Susannah said...

Thank you, Sharon......so interesting this time of year. One can never get too much of fall foliage.

Our foliage here in the Finger Lakes of NY is not peak yet. We are going to get alot of rain this weekend. We will see after that.

I love to come to your blog!

PS...we always take the "back roads"!

Oliag said...

I LOVE a good road trip! Mr O likes to take the road less traveled too and I am happier for it:) The leaves are finally starting to turn here in RI...altho I think Irene will make them not so pretty this year:(

Gorgeous photos! That train looks like it is going to run you down!

Melissa said...

Ah...I fear my annual trip to New England in October...at least for the past 3 years since I moved from New England back home to Jersey...will not happen this year. Luckily for me, you've captured it's essence and shared.

Hi Sharon...Your photos were startling in their beauty. Don't we live in the most exquisite place? New England truly has some breathtaking scenery in all seasons, but especially fall, I think. Susan

I want to be up there so bad I can't stand it. I was there this time last year. The most beautiful place in the USA in my opinion! Thanks so much for the gorgeous pics that make me feel like I am right there now!

This is not far from where our weekend home is. I wish I were there now, instead of the Boston suburbs. It is so pretty up north this time of year. Will be there next weekend, hopefully. In the meantime, I can look at your lovely shots and dream.....

Sigh - picture-perfect New England fall!
