“Waiting For The Grass To Grow”

Here in the state of New Hampshire, our haying season is a fairly short one. We just barely can squeeze in a second cut before the weather gets to cold at night and the grasses stop growing. If we are lucky we may get a stellar third cut and that hay often stays green in the barn throughout the entire winter. This spring is no different. The snows have melted and the grasses have sprouted. We all wait anxiously and “at the ready” for it to reach the right height. Then we begin to pray for  a few days of dry weather to cut it, fork it, dry it, bale it and put it up! Let’s hope this is a three cut summer!

NEW HAMPSHIRE Will Melt Your Heart

NH Will Melt Your Heart

After an incredibly busy week of eat, sleeping and drinking our JTT exhibit opening at the Main Street Art Gallery, I shared the joy of getting out early on Sunday with Chris Keeley of http://www.ChrisKeeleyPhoto.com and Meagan Corlin Brogan of http://www.ShutterForcePhotgraphy.com for some one on one shooting time. Ok, so two on one shooting time if we need to be technical  but it was the first time just the three of us got together to photograph since we traveled to Tanzania with The Giving Lens of http://www.TheGivingLens.com, last July. The climate was definitely different but the comradery was the undeniably the same. Image captured at the Cocheco Falls in Dover, NH.

“Superstitious Sunset”

Beautiful and breathtaking scenery, am I right?  This sunset was captured while driving on The Apache Trail. It was once used by the Apache Indians to travel through the mountains and then became a main trail for the stage coach. On our maps today, you will see it listed as “STATE ROUTE 88” and it winds it’s way for 40 miles through the Tonto Forest and the Superstition Mountains of the Greater Phoenix, Arizona area.

The guide books tell you it is a “must drive” journey, as you will see incredible, varied dessert and mountain terrain and drive right by the  impressive Theodore Roosevelt Lake and Hydroelectric Power Dam.  But do not be deceived! No matte what the guide books and tourists tell you it being “bumpy but doable” route,  you had best rent yourself a vehicle with sturdy tires accustomed to off road-ing!   A good … and I mean GOOD … LONG portion of this road is not paved, pitted with deep holes, very bumpy and often only wide enough for one car to pass. The pin turns can be very treacherous and high on mountainside cliffs that are without guard rails that are built to stop a car from careening to certain death if the driver isn’t paying full attention, at all times. Oh and did I mention to plan on taking nearly 4 hours to cross? It is longer than you think when you can only drive 15 miles an hour. To add to the danger there are NO street lights and it is really, and I mean REALLY dark up there! So be advised to make it a morning trip or at least be certain you are at the end of the journey by dusk. And watch out for animals! The Coyotes are plentiful and dash before your headlights and you never see them coming.

This all sounds like a lot of doom and gloom but I offer this advise only to help you to be prepared so that you can actually enjoy the stunning beauty of this drive.  Take my advice and rent the jeep and it absolutely is a “must drive” adventure, you won’t be sorry!
