Foliage Along the Nashua River


Last Sunday, I pulled over by the side of the road to make this image (made and edited in my iPhone) along the Nashua River in Hollis, NH. Wind and rain had caused us to lose much of the foliage, but this spot still looked quite nice.

As a bonus, say hello to my little friend. He is a porcupine that I’ve met a few times while hiking. He lives around an often traveled pathway along a dam on the conservation land near home. He is rather cute but is low on the cuddly scale. This was also made with my iPhone from about ten feet away and then cropped to enlarge him a bit. Sorry, that it is a bit grainy.

        I see that you-all are ahead of us in the fall color department; very nice color this year. Is that critter an armadillo wearin a spike hair wig !? ; ) Wild life so different from what we see in our part of the country reminds me of how very large our entire country is ! ; )

      I think this guy is an anomaly. Usually, they are nocturnal. He may be somewhat habituated to people because of where he lives. I’ve never been stuck and don’t want to be.

    What a beautiful river side view! Loved the autumn colors and a genuine living porcupine to boot! Sadly we have no porcupines by the roads. Just ants, flies and birds ha ha😊

      Thank you. Even if you lived in this part of the world, seeing a live porcupine in the wild is pretty rare. I would imagine that you have some lovely birds. Cheers!

    Very nice photo of the leaves! They are just beginning to turn where I live, but the color is minimal so far. Lots of the leaves are just turning brown and falling off.

      We are fortunate that leaves here look pretty before they fall. Some trees just turn brown and that’s it. Most of our leaves are down now. I may take a ride south to Boston this weekend and see how things look. I hope you get to see some pretty colors. Cheers!

      The porcupine is not as loved as other animals because he is shy and prickly, but I’ve discovered he is a cute little guy with a fairly tolerant temperament. Let’s hope I can watch the game and not study all afternoon. Are you a football fan, Canadian or otherwise?
