Road Trippin to Cornish, NH

Town centers in New Hampshire often have white, wooden buildings. In Washington, NH, they are all arranged ratehr artfully in close proximity.

These are images that I made on the way to Cornish, NH and home again. One is from Vermont from a brief stop I made there. There was nice light for color images that day.

This gazebo is also in Washington, NH and still has its Independence Day decorations.
This rather large trebuchet is in Greenfield, NH. We’ve seen it in operation. It is pretty amazing.
This and the next limage are from a lumber mill in Greenfield, NH. These logs will become lumber.
These logs were stripped of their bark and are ready to enter the sawmill when operations begin Monday morning.
This old barn is in Windsor, VT and is huge. It continued and wrapped around me.
I took this somewhere along the way. I seem to be collecting images of ways that people display their flag.

        That’s right reminds me of the civil war era…though i am not for US but history and literature is what i am passionate about aside from poetry.

        It probably is from that era. I enjoy history also and read a lot of history books. I tend to focus mainly on US history but sometimes read about other places and times. What history interests you most?

        For US history i love the time of Abe Lincoln..i felt like it characterized what America is today. And for world history i love the pre world war 2 era.

        had a year that I spent a lot of time reading about the Civil War and had a couple of trips that included visits to Gettysburg and Antietam battlefields. It was a terrible and yet defining time in our country’s history. I’ve read a lot on WWII also because both of my grandfathers served in the war.

        That is wonderful…i have been reading about the civil wat era and i am time and time again drawn by the fact that America has changed a lot…in a really good way.

    The trebuchet photo is wonderful! Do you have photos of it being used? I would love to see that. The last photo is a beauty–that is one huge flag.

    I love the town center. Interesting that many are all white. I am fascinated by lumber mills and love the smell of freshly milled trees (I wish we didn’t have to cut down so many). My grandfather worked at a lumber mill in Eastern Idaho and I remember visiting at a very young age and thinking “that’s what I want to do when I grow up.” Grateful now I chose an alternate path, but still love seeing mills. Great post!

      Thank you. I’m not sure how the trend of white churches and town halls started but many in our area are painted white. I also find lumber mills fascinating. Occasionally in my travels, I encounter people who do tree work and their level of fitness is astounding. On the other hand, it’s not easy work and the risk is substantial.

    Great historical imagery here Chris! I am always curious about the history of barns. The family history, if it was passed down, how many times…etc. I’m sure it’s hard to know these things but it would be an interesting story is my guess. Thank you for sharing your adventure! Take good care
