I’m so excited to finally be able to tell you guys about my trip to Pillsbury State Park, NH! You may remember my post on Pawtuckaway State Park at the end of last year. After seeing that post, the guys over at NH Parks and Rec asked me if I would continue to photograph their beautiful trials; and of course I said yes. It took a few attempts for me to adjust to the demands of winter hiking, but once I got out on this trail, it was immediately obvious that all of my preparation was worth it.
[quote]When I made the leap to move from sunny Phoenix AZ to New England last summer one of the things I was most excited about was hiking with real trees. Throughout the end of the summer and into autumn I haven’t been disappointed and the trails out here have stolen my heart. As the weather has gotten colder and snow has begun to fall I’ve been determined not to let winter keep me indoors. Snow and icy wind bring up some interesting opportunities for a photographer and plenty of challenges. My goals when I’m on a trail are two-fold. First, I’m there for the love of the hike and I need to be as prepared as any winter hiker would be. Second, I want to capture the experience. Before even reaching the trail head at Pillsbury State Park, there was a clear sense quite serenity.[/quote]
