July, White Mountains – This month in the White Mountains of New Hampshire has been wild! Last month we dealt with dreary, rainy overcast days and now for most of this month we have been dealing very humid weather. I can't wait to see what August brings.

July has been another busy month with much of work being in the office. It seems the 200-300 days a year in the field for me is a thing of the past. The days I did spend shooting were all scheduled for ongoing and upcoming projects. It has been a fun and exciting year so far!

I needed updated imagery of the B-18 Bomber that crashed January 14, 1942 on the side of Mt Waternomee in Woodstock, New Hampshire. No word or statement can describe the importance of this site. It is one of the most peaceful places I have photographed in the White Mountains.

Scenic view from the summit of Mount Tecumseh in Waterville Valley, New Hampshire during the summer months.  If you are thinking the view looks better than you remember, its because someone has cut down a few trees to improve the view.

I visited Mt Tecumseh in Waterville Valley. In the 2012-2013 winter season, someone took it upon themselves to open the summit view by cutting down a few trees. While in the area, I also photographed trees along the Mt Tecumseh Trail that Forest Service removed improper trail blazing from in 2012. They did a great job!

One day this month I hiked to the summit of Sugarloaf Mountain in Bethlehem, New Hampshire for sunset. The sunset was a bust, but I was pleased to see excellent low impact trail work along the Sugarloaf Trail. The stonework looks natural and blends in well with its surroundings.
