View Full Version : An Autumn Trek to East Rattlesnake and Five Finger Point (Lakes Region of NH)

The 1981 movie "On Golden Pond" immediately comes to mind each time I hike in the Lakes Region of NH. As many readers will recall, this film starred Henry Fonda and Katherine Hepburn, along with Jane Fonda. The story centers around an aging couple, Ethel and Norman Thayer, who spend each summer at their home on a lake called Golden Pond.

It?s little wonder that the filmmakers chose the Squam Lake area as the setting for this movie. It is a gorgeous place all year-round, but especially picturesque in the autumn season.

With the colors of autumn starting to fade near my home in northern NH, I decided to drive south to the Lakes Region to do a hike where colorful foliage remained vividly present on the 24th day of October.

Shown below is one of the photos taken during my hike. More photos are at my Blog (click HERE (http://1happyhiker.blogspot.com/2011/10/autumn-trek-to-east-rattlesnake-and.html)).

Anna . . . your generous comments are most appreciated!

Regarding my snapshots, the only credit I can take is for pressing the shutter button. Mother Nature did all the rest! It was truly a "point and shoot" type of day!:)
