Woodland Walk with Winston
December 2018

One of the things I love most about where we live in New Hampshire is the plethora of trails and outdoor spaces within a short distance from our home. This trail is maybe a ten minute drive from our house, and I could pretty easily bike here and then hike to a swimming hole if I wanted...
