With the current COVID-19 situation, we had no real plans for the Columbus Day holiday weekend other than to just get out and appreciate the wonderful October foliage. And we had a wonderful time doing just that with no traffic.
Thursday 10/08/20 Mt. Washington had its first snow of the season! We took a special drive up to the ridge Friday 10/09/20 so Sue could get this really spectacular picture.
After both Sue and I had chiropractic adjustments late morning Friday 10/09, we did a 'Memorial UNH Fall Foliage Drive' past the University's Main Admin Building. After chronicling 20 years of these yearly visits, I stopped going in 2017 after moving to New Durham as it's about 40 minutes away, and we have soooo many beautiful places to go around here.
Saturday 10/10 off for a walk on the Rail Trail
Can just barely see me on top of the rock wall.
And, you can just barely see Beau through the woods even though he has his orange vest on.
On the way back from the Rail Trail Hike, Sue got a couple of nice pictures of a local field.
A heard of Belted Galloways grazing in the field.

Closing out the day at home up by the screen house with some wine, and backgammon.
Sunday 10/11 we decided to take a foliage drive over to Berry's River Reservoir and hike around there for awhile.

Monday 10/12 Columbus Day foliage drive over to Bow Lake in Northwood.
Sue had been out on her own foliage drive and got this picture from one of the farms up on a hill overlooking Lake Winnipesaukee.
