    The world around you thread

    I always find it interesting to see the landscapes from where others live.

    We escaped NJ in 2013 and are very happy to be located in the Mt. Washington Valley of NH now.

    Here are just a few of the vistas I am lucky to see, everyday!

    The Pea Porridge Ponds;
    I'm on the hill in center photo....



    Crystal Lake;



    Mt. Chocorua, ala a crappy cell pic;



    And Mt Washington, which I get to gaze upon everyday on my way to work;




    So let's see the world[s] around you.

    I've spent a fair amount of time in your neck of the woods, CSW...North Conway, Tuckerman Ravine etc. My climbing / backpacking partners and I would often do Mt. Washington in winter (Lion's Head and other trails). Great X-C skiing as well. I have a sister living in Keene.

    These aren't my images but represent some of the local beauty just minutes from our home in Transylvania County, NC:









    We are surrounded by state and national forest, (much of which is under siege by forest fire of late), and the water scenes in Daniel Day Lewis' "Last Of The Mohicans" were filmed about 4 miles from our home as the crow flies.

    I recognize those spots, blues ..... Looking Glass and John Rock. I'm only an hour or so from there.
    Critical thinking, done in the absence of context and relevance, can only produce something useful to someone with an overactive imagination.
    Knowing and understanding is not the same thing.
    Not everything that can be counted counts, and not everything that counts can be counted.

    I'm in western Washington. This is logging country on the Pacific coast a couple of hours south of Seattle, but the hills, fog, and rain are the same.




    The hills look like this with a city superimposed on them:
