Sue's cousin Evan attends UNH and is on the woodsman team which was participating in their annual multi school woodsman competition.
We drove over to the location off of Rt 155A just outside of campus and parked in the grassy Sawmill parking lot. We were there about 2.5 hours, and it was really pretty chilly, particularly with the wind whipping through the trees and across the field.
I had seen competitions like this on tv, so it was really interesting for me to see what goes on in person. We grabbed a hamburger and chips from the concession area just before Evan's event, and were able to get a great spot close to where Evan and his partner were.
After watching Evan's competition, Sue and I drove into Durham and parked the car. We took a circular walk around campus, stopping for the traditional picture of the tree in front of the main admistration building. The leaves were all out in full color and it was just a beautiful walk.
