I grabbed my coffee at Dunkins this morning, and drove 9.2 miles on the Kancamagus Scenic Highway to finish my first cup before work.
Spectacular views right, how far did I hike to get these: the Next photo will give you your answer.
I had to get out of the car to take the pictures, but my coffee didn't get cold while waiting for photos.
This one I admit I didn't have to get out of the car for, talk about bang for the buck- this is but one of the more than a dozen scenic pull in areas. It took me 10 minutes to drive here from my office.
Lincoln Woods Ranger Station is Walking Distance from Loon Mountain Ski Resort, and about 3 miles from my office..sounds like I'm bragging ..sorry..if you live in the city.
Now the beast: It's Bow hunting season and the next photo is not for everyone: 345 pound black bear taken by a local hunter..who holds the record for the largest black bear taken by bow at 460 pounds. He was parked at the coffee shop and I had a camera..don't pan down if a dead Yogi is not your thing.
We get more done before 8 am, than some people do all day.. P.S. I am not a hunter..don't own a gun or a bow..but this is life in the country. Beautiful mountains , wildlife mostly alive.
Take a drive..up the "KANC" ..the views are worth the ride..
