Waterfall Wednesday

Crystal Cascade, Pinkham Notch, NH I’ve hiked by this waterfall many times, usually in the dark or too tired at the end of a long hike to give it much thought. A couple of weeks ago I decided it was time to pay it a proper visit. So with workshop client in tow we made… Read More
