My son and I have a tradition of going to Pitcher Mountain to pick blueberries each August. The mountain is in Stoddard, New Hampshire and the hike to the top is quick, but the views from the 2163 foot summit are gorgeous!
This is the first time I’ve seen these new wind towers. Sorry my photo isn’t that good, but we counted 8 of them on the hillside in Lempster. I’ve heard that they are loud, disrupt the flight patterns of birds, and other negative info. Wind Towers are also being put up near another favorite spot of min – Gregg Lake in Antrim. I’ll have to become informed, but after reading about it, I don’t see how it will save me any money and I wouldn’t like these things popping up all over this beautiful state to ruin the views!
The top of the mountain is full of blueberry bushes. If we split up and pick, then combine our efforts, we can gather a nice crop of berries to eat, cook with and freeze. All that is required is a donation at the bottom of the hill in the parking area.
According to this site, New Hampshire has 17 active standing fire towers and others that are not used. If you want to know how to visit them click here.
Every year I say I’ll go back again and get more berries and then the time goes by and blueberry season has ended. But the mountain is still there, and we can always go for a hike and get some new photos.
