September Is For Bagpipes

This past month I enjoyed Celtic music at the New Hampshire Highland Games (in Lincoln, NH) and also at Pipes In The Valley (Hartford, CT).  Here are a few pictures from the events as well as from a little nature walk my friend and I took at Franconia Notch, NH.

The river itself was like a natural granite canal.  The water flowed like mad.

"The Brick Store" claims to be the oldest general store in the country.  It's located in Bath, NH.  We encountered it on our way home.
