A Trek to a Ledge off Hogan Road between Shelburne and Gorham, NH


Can you remember back when you were a child and you would just do things? You never thought to yourself, “What are the relative merits of doing ‘A’ versus ‘B’?”  You were led merely by your curiosity and excitement.  If you loved looking for bugs, you just did that.  There was no second-level analysis.

Perhaps it’s rather childlike, but I am happiest when I am just doing things, not for the sake of a specific purpose, but just for the sake of trying something new.  I think there is value to staying true to who you are and doing what makes you happy.

So with the above thoughts in mind, in early December 2019, I did a short bushwhack (about 2.5 miles round-trip) to one of the many ledges off the north side of Hogan Road between Shelburne and Gorham, NH.  This trek was done purely for the fun of it.  It isn’t on any list, and there were no breathtaking views, but then again, none were expected!😀

It is completely understandable that offbeat adventures such as this are of little interest to many folks.  Nonetheless, from time to time, I’ll post some of these exploits to my blog with the thought that perhaps it might provide inspiration to someone to pursue whatever makes them happy.

Hi John,

That bonus shot is awesome! Looks like a painting.

I like this little hike you took, just because you felt like it! Very nice.

And thanks for the tidbit of inspiration in this blog; it's a wonderful reminder in the new year to pursue whatever makes us happy and not to "overthink" every decision!

Rita . . . many thanks for your kind words about the ‘bonus photo’ included in this posting. And also thank you for your comments relative to the essence of this blog posting, i.e. not over-thinking decisions about how to spend your leisure time, be it hiking, or whatever.
