Scenes of April, New Hampshire

April 2016 - View from the summit of Mount Tecumseh in Waterville Valley, New Hampshire during the month of April. Over the last few years, vandalism (illegal tree cutting) has improved this summit view point.

Scenes of April, New Hampshire – What a month it has been weather wise here in the New Hampshire White Mountains. Ice, snow, rain, and warm weather. You name it, we have had it this month. With April coming to an end, it won’t be long until the grass is green, but the trails are still an icy mess at higher elevations. Crampons have been the chosen foot traction this month.

My monthly blog article showcasing five images from the month only consists of three images this month. April has been an interesting month for me because I had to shut down for most of it to take care of a family matter. This blog article reflects how little shooting I did this month. The last time I had to shut down like this was about thirteen years ago. And I am anxious to get back into the swing of things.

Site of the Wildwood settlement along Route 112 in the town of Easton, New Hampshire during the month of April. Wildwood was a logging settlement during the 20th century along the Wild Ammonoosuc River. The first Civilian Conservation Corps camp authorized in New Hampshire was also located at Wildwood.

I did get back to the abandoned logging settlement of Wildwood in Easton one day this month. Wildwood is known mostly for the log drives on the Wild Ammonoosuc River. I spent a day scouting areas of the settlement that I will be shooting during the summer. If you enjoy the history of the White Mountains, this section of Easton is very interesting. I must admit, the history surrounding the area is a little challenging to decipher.

The general area of where the Whitcherville Dam was along on the Wild Ammonoosuc River, along Route 112, in Landaff, New Hampshire USA. Whitcherville, named for the Whitcher family, was a 1800’s settlement that played a role in the log drives down the Wild Ammonoosuc to the Connecticut River. The main driving dam was located here.

I also documented the site of the Whitcherville log driving dam on the Wild Ammonoosuc River. Whitcherville, named for the Whitcher family, was an 1800s settlement located west of the Wildwood settlement, along today’s Route 112, in Landaff, New Hampshire. The main driving dam for the Wildwood (Mt Moosilauke area) river logging operation was located at Whitcherville. The general area of where the dam was can be seen in the above image.
