As it should be--and hope you can keep it that way. And yes, sometimes you don't truly understand how fortunate until it's gone. My family had the same place from 1945-2012, and has been on the Lake...

Belknap is closed -- the email went out a few weeks ago.

Ditto for its "sister" camp, Huckins, in Freedom.

I think a real tell-tale litmus test of the validity of continuing the lockdowns will come in the coming days, when we see if all this urban protesting results in "spikes" in infection. They say ~80%...

Where are this year's ice-out guesses posted?

Can't find them to save my life.

They were never "bountiful" in the Lake, but it seems that there are far fewer now. When I was a kid in the 60s and 70s, you could catch some good-sized yellow perch, and would routinely see large...

Mama Moose on Moultonborough Neck

I was recently returning from a dog walk on the Neck, on the western side, just a bit south of Tecumseh, when a moose calf ran across the path, followed closely by the (big) mama. So I took the (very...

That said, they like dead stuff, and do eat ticks.

He/she would raid our boathouse occasionally, leave a mess, and escape--usually JUST before we entered.

This happened most often in the spring, fall,...
