Alton Bay, NH - Photos

Since both winter hikes were cancelled this weekend, I decided to take some photos today. Last week I spent Sunday hiking to the summit of Mt. Major overlooking Alton Bay, NH and I was not able to get photos of the ice fishers on Lake Winnipesaukee. So I went back this morning and spent a couple hours from the shore as well as on the lake happily snapping photos. For lunch I dined at Shibley's At The Pier. They're located on the Lake and their wait staff are friendly and professional. Dined on the Hawaiian Chicken Sandwich, soup and hot tea and snapped more photos as well. Oh, and I finally got photos of those ice flows on the northbound side of I-93 between exits 8 & 9, as well as some along Route NH 11! I so desire to climb those!
