New Hampshire, fall foliage and a Mercury-Redstone rocket
Welcome leaf peepers and fall foliage lovers the world over. You may be wondering what the heck I’m talking about??? I tell you all the time to prepare to explore and be like a child and open to all the possibilities. Well Several years back when Lisa and I were driving up into New Hampshire’s more northern areas, we came upon Warren New Hampshire. This small town was showing decent fall color in but not great but what we saw made us stop all the same.
The eagle has landed
We are driving through the town and there is a Mercury-Redstone rocket newt to this New Hampshire church. I was only 2 years old when the first Mercury mission flew Alan Shepard into a sub-orbital flight lasting 15 minutes before returning back to the earth.
Locating Warren New Hampshire
Just head up I-93 and when you get to Plymouth NH and route 25, take that exit and head west towards Rumney NH. You can follow it up till it breaks with 25A so continue heading North into Warren. I don’t think this warrants a map since I would hope you all have bought your New Hampshire Gazetteers!
Here is another image from Google maps of the Rocket and church.
The picture was captured during Sept 2009 and as you can see the tree near the church was well on it’s way to turning. I wonder how it will look in two weeks?
Coming this week!
I’m watching the big, no make that really big tropical storms brewing off the coast of Florida. The question is if we get hit now in early September with a lot of rain and wind, can that hurt us?

I started with Yankee Magazine as their first blogger on everything fall foliage. Now I blog on my own blog on my favorite subject, telling leaf peepers where the fall foliage is showing up in New England and helping them (to some extent) plan their fall foliage vacations.
