Hiking in Lakes Region NH

Beautiful morning yesterday. We went hiking West and East Rattlesnake in Holderness (Lakes region of New Hampshire.) Did not see any rattlesnakes, just one little garter snake on the trail. Lots of mosquitoes out too. This was our first real hike of the summer and we enjoyed it. Took our time going up and down the trails. This took us about 3 hours with a lunch break, but could be done much faster by those who are younger and speedier.

That big rock in the top picture is called a glacial erratic. There are lots of these in northern New England. We saw many on Mount Pisgah in Vermont when we hiked there many years ago.
