Dead Swamp


This is the Dead Swamp, located in Townsend State Forest.  Townsend is my usual destination when I want to get out for a walk, but don’t have time to go to the White Mountains.

I came out this way on Dec 29, with the hopes of a photographing a moose. Not impossible, but I equate the odds as approximately the same as winning the lottery. I have seen signs in the area, but not every trip.

The last hours of autumn

The last hours of autumn

This cliff is on private property, bordering Townsend State Forest, about 100 yards from the New Hampshire State Line. The photo was taken at the very close of Autumn, just a couple hours before the Winter Solstice. Unseen, there is a barbed wire fence between the cliffs and where the photographer stood. Just a few minutes prior, the ATV riders had vacated the area before the photographer arrived on foot.

The temperature was just above freezing. There was a light snow falling, but melting as it touched ground
