Set 2of Fields Near Our Cottage
Bob Jensen at Trinity University
April is a dreary month up in these mountains and is usually called mud season
because of heavy snow melt in April.
In Winter 2016 there was very little snow and hence very little snow melt in April.
In some ways April without snow up here is more ugly than April with sloppy melting snow.
Hence I will dig down into my photographs of other seasons of the year.
In this edition of Tidbits I will focus on my pictures of nearby fields.
I love pictures of fields.
Sadly there are fewer fields up here that have livestock grazing.
Hence many of these fields are for putting away hay but not for grazing.
New Hampshire is not much of a state for farming.

A farm adjoining that organic farm specializes in flowers and plants
About a mile from our cottage this grazing Appaloosa mare over 30 years if
Slightly beyond is the Iris farm that occasionally has horses grazing
In the 1970s I spent two years in a think tank on the edge of the Stanford
I used to walk through this field of cows to get from our rented house to the think tank on a hill visible in this old photograph
This is Lisl and Marshall at a young age in that restful field beside the CASBS Think Tank ---
Believe it or not, this is a picture of me taken when I was in college in
Colorado in the 1960s
My favorite place to ride was at the Singing River Ranch in Bear Creek Canyon
Now I look in the mirror as think "what in the Hell happened?"
I'm told that the Singing River Ranch was developed into housing years ago
I'd prefer to remember the ranch and me as we were in the 1960s
