A great time of year to be outdoors is June--winter has long gone, trees are in full leaf providing shade when needed, and, it's not usually overwhelmingly hot.
I'd like to once again remind you to check out the Nesmith Library's "Travel Close to Home" Pinterest board. The board contains many outdoor locations and activities located within a couple hours' drive from Windham. (Also included are museums.)
We have several new books on the great outdoors including one by a writer whose mother volunteers here at the Library--Jeffrey Romano: Day Trips New England: Maine, New Hampshire, Vermont, Connecticut, Massachusetts, Rhode Island [917.4 ROM]. We have two others of Jeff's books in out collection, 100 Classic Hikes in New England: Maine, New Hampshire, Vermont, Massachusetts, Rhode Island, Connecticut [917.4 ROM], and, Best Loop Hikes: New Hampshire's White Mountains to the Maine Coast [917.4 ROM].
Others of our New England travel guides include AMC's best backpacking in New England: A Guide to 37 of the Best Multiday Trips from Maine to Connecticut by Matt Heid [917.404 HEI], Rockhounding New England: A Guide to 100 of the Region's Best Rockhounding Sites by Peter Cristofono [552.0974 CRI], Outdoors with Kids Maine, New Hampshire, and Vermont: 75 of the Best Family Hiking, Camping, and Paddling Trips by Ethan Hipple [796.50974 HIP], and Birdwatching in New Hampshire by Eric A. Masterson [598.072 MAS].
Head outdoors this month, bring a camera, but don't forget the bug repellant!
