Pawtuckaway without Crowds

I spent a couple of hours at Pawtuckaway State Park in Raymond yesterday, still waiting on southern NH’s first snowfall of the season. Great time for a visit. I came in the “back” way, via Reservation Road in Deerfield, parking at the Round Pond Trailhead alongside a couple of other vehicles. I had no company on my walk to Tower Road and the fire tower. I’d never been to the tower without finding dozens of other hikers there, and I rather liked having the view to myself.

Lots of sunshine, though there was too much haze to see Boston.
