Mount Chocorua

I took a photo of Mount Chocorua last summer and everyone encouraged me to go back when it would be snow-capped. I ventured up there a couple of weekends ago. The lake was frozen and the mountaintop was coated in ice and snow. There are two more images below. One is a closer image of the mountain and the other is from last summer.

Alton Bay Ice Runway

Once the ice is thick enough in Alton Boy on Lake Winnipesaukee, they plow a runway for small private planes to land. I went up on Sunday of last weekend. With good weather, there were landings every few minutes. Alton Bay is surrounded by local restaurants. The pilots fly in, have a good meal, socialize, and then fly back home. It’s something to see.

Annual Ice Fishing Derby

Last Sunday was our town’s annual ice fishing derby. I took a walk around the ice to take some pictures and talk to people. While i was there the fish weren’t biting. I hope their luck changed.
