At the entrance of the Fraconia Notch State park in Lincoln New Hampshire you'll find the Flume Gorge. From there you can explore a few hundred-thousand acres of wilderness...if every direction. I93 to exit 34 /Flume. The water pounds through this narrow gorge after a heavy rain...the boardwalk stays up from May till late October before being disassembled for the winter.                                                                                           Bridal Veil falls.   A hidden hiking trail not frequented by many lies just north of the Notch...beyond the Cannon Mountain ski area and the public beach on Echo lake part of the state park system here in New Hampshire. This hike can be found on any decent trail map or if you search the Internet for Bridal Veil Falls, it will be wo...

In the White Mountains of New Hampshire - What a difference a day makes (or even a couple of hours).                             Sunrise inspection of the field that leads to the Pemi river. The head count is complete, all present and accounted for. We had three Teenage boys who insisted on camping out last night. The fog was as thick as pea soup, and it rained hard...really hard. I was nervous the tent would be swept down river. These are New Hampshire boys and they know about the outdoors...so I advised them to come in if it got to wet or if they felt the water rising under the tent.                     But then the sun broke through and all was right with the world.                      Don't get me wrong this river is still very treacherous and will be for days.   If you look closel...

There is still plenty of snow up at the higher elevations for the temps reached 75 today in the White Mountains of New Hampshire. This means major melting and swollen rivers.  These condos at the base of Loon Mountain are typically 100 feet or more away from the water but spring means flirting a bit with the raising river levels. The Fog is eating up the snow quickly and the Kayaks have already jumped on the white water created by the fast melt. Rivergreen Condominiums (condos starting at 99K) built by my parent company 25 years ago...site along the Pemigewasset River - this side on the river will run nearly dry by August...But today it's pretty close to the indoor pool building . Ask me  about condos for sale in the Loon Mountain area - or open the MLS icon at the bottom of this post a...

Working out the kinks in my swing - while wearing Bean Boots in the mud. I started watching the master but needed some fresh air, and the golf bug bit me. Watching those guys play inspired me to get ready for the senior tour. My wife tells me to go...go ahead go try to play professional golf - you're not that good honey!  April 10th 2011 Woodstock New Hampshire frozen pond, snowy field and the masters are on.      P.S. my hook has returned...it was a long winter, and the ski area is open till next Sunday/

This was a work to allow the life you want day. This is why we live here. I determined this was my last day of the year on the slopes, before I arrived on the hill. Ever time something so perfect you question how could you be so lucky? We had one of those days today. It turned out to be just the perfect temp, Sun, snow consistency, wind...you know Perfect. I almost felt guilty...almost. If you sail, fish, hike, golf, (or have another outdoor passion)...or any other interest that makes you -you, this was a dream day. "Epic" Today I didn't need somebody to love me, want me, need me as much as I needed somebody to love. I love my wife and this life. I skied with a buddy and my wife,we looked out at the scene and said how lucky can we be to have this day together. no one faking a smile toda...

Ready for some spring...So am I, but the Kancamagus scenic highway that travels from Lincoln New Hampshire to North Conway - Through the White Mountain national forest is not ready to yield it's winter grip quite yet. April 6 2011    The Snow banks on the Kank are taller than my SUV. Have a look at this quick video of a short drive over the top of the "KANC" I had two hours to kill between appointments today - so out came the snowshoes, and up the "KANC" I went. The Hancock Notch Trail...was fresh and white no foot prints left behind as evidence of last night's new snow. The elevation of the Kancamagus at the highest point on the road is just under 3,000 feet. Spring storms will continue to dump snow at this height well in to May.    One of the many beautiful Vistas along the road...the...

The North Country Center for the Arts - Flew Steel at Jean's Play House today. It was a rather chilly March day in the White Mountains of New Hampshire with a serious threat of more snow in the air, the dedication ceremony went off without a hitch. Although there are no walls up on the Play house yet, it was decidedly warmer when standing in a crowd of happy patrons of the arts. From rather humble beginnings, back in 1985 the old paper mill machine room #1 was "temporarily" transformed in to a play house...and it stood for 25 seasons of great musical theater.           Machine Room number #1 produced the best paper in America at the turn of the century.     Machine #1 was turned in to the "Papermill Theater" where young talented artist sang and danced during their stint in summer theate...

Cloudy sky's and Corduroy slopes...One of the best states to call home in all of America. We are expecting more snow tonight in the White Mountains of New Hampshire. Early runs mean Groomed slopes from the night before, having received 6 inches of fresh crisp white snow...I was ready to go. No marks on this carpet of Corduroy, something most skiers rarely see unless they are on the first lift of the day. It was time to crank out a few quick top to bottom runs, as two short sales have to be negotiated and a land closing require my attention before a noon deadline. What looks like all clouds is really a mixture of White capped mountains in the distance and storm clouds moving in...One last run and off to check on a custom Adirondack home we are building for a great client...Lucky I can sk...

I try to get outside Sunday after work...as the days get longer I get more ambitious. I know there is still a ton of snow in the woods, but I'm drawn to Glover brook -for a look every season. A Fall Shot below.  It really is a pretty hike in the fall...After over 100 inches of snow this winter and temps still in the 30's we have a lot of snow in the hemlock covered shadows of Glover Brook. I strapped on the snow shoes with spikes for this icy hike along the brook. Here is a short narrative of the ice , snow and rushing water along today's hike.                       Enjoy the sights and sounds of Glover Brook -March 2011                                      http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=w3riPMIl6pM

I try to post the best pictures that I can, but I never really use my little Sony Cybershot camera to shoot videos. Yesterday during a quick detour to the ski slopes I shot this video from the Top of Boom Run ski trail on the South Mountain side of Loon. What does that have to do with real estate you may ask? This trail leads you to the slope side Adirondack style homes we are custom building at the South Peak Resort. This is a ski to your door location and I'm going to show you the trip down to that destination. You may want to check the volume when you play this as I began to ski the sound of the wind rushing by can get pretty loud.             http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zRN_-lUlS_g          I was simply holding the camera out in front while I skied...enjoy my ride.               ...

I had a Roofing specialist who has been after me to - listen to his pitch. I'm approached by Stagers , Electricians, Plumbers, Framers, Cleaning companies, Landscape companies, Title companies....and the list goes on and on. They all want a few minutes of my time, I'll buy you lunch...is often the come on. I usually eat lunch at my desk, when I'm here I'm working, but take me golfing or skiing and you have a deal. No one has to buy me a ticket or pay for a round of golf...I have my own pass -and -memberships thank you. I can't be bought, but I can be entertained and I enjoy my sports as much as any other Property Professional I have ever met. *While you were at your desk today, I took an hour off for lunch. I didn't actually eat, but I left the office* Want to talk about staging a listi...

When we spring the clocks forward, naturally the thoughts of melting snow and projects put off for the winter will be coming to mind. Don't get me wrong we expect to be skiing for another month and a half (Easter Weekend is usually the closing date), but now is the time to plan for building. With Designs, local building permits and a Architectural approval process Looming ahead of you...want to be digging as soon as the frost is out of the ground. The folks we are building this home for are looking forward to having it completed by the summer school vacation season, and having full use of this ski back location by next years ski season. This 4,700 square foot Adirondack Style post and beam home will have taken a little over a year from the design to the delivery stage. The intricate des...

After two weeks of back to back School vacations in the surrounding New England states...I had a chance to ski for two hours today - prior to my first meeting of the day. We had a ton of rain on Monday...but it froze to the trees at higher elevations. This is a shot of Mount Washington New England's highest peak (6,300 feet) on a clear day you can see 50 miles to the east.    The Loon Mountain Ski Resort had received 73 inches of snow in February alone...so a little rain made for a tough couple of days of skiing, but with great grooming and deep coverage the spring skiing will be awesome. The Northern view from the top of Loon Mountain....Not a bad day in Lincoln New Hampshire. This is the View of Franconia Notch from the top of the South mountain summit of the Loon Mt resort.   We have...
