My first trip to visit waterfalls in the Upper Peninsula. Was it worth the long drive?

Contoocook River

Several weeks ago, I bought myself a kayak. I've wanted one for years, but never bought one. Sure, I'd paddled a couple of times with other people's boats, but never owned one. Now I do it's allowing me a new way to engage with nature and my photography. Here it is - a Wilderness Systems... Continue Reading →

Step into the past

It has 3 branches (north, middle and south), runs for 57 miles with little interruption and its name translates from a... Continue Reading →

This is Mill Brook.  Yeah, original huh?  There is still a semi-active mill... Continue Reading →
