Autumn colors on Temple Road

Autumn Colors

This weekend, millions of leaf peepers took the annual pilgrimage throughout New Hampshire and Vermont. Most headed up to the White Mountains and got stuck in traffic. In New Ipswich, we have it a bit easier, we only need to step outside.

These photos were taken along Temple Road in New Ipswich. As one travels from New Ipswich to Temple, there are a number of NO PIPELINE signs. Temple Road is the proposed location for a 40,000 HP Compressor Station which is part of the Northeast Energy Direct natural gas pipeline that Kinder Morgan seeks to build in New England, New York and Pennsylvania. I’d rather we just leave the road as it is.

  1. Beautiful pictures JP……I read about them wanting a compression station near The House of Prayer…..I can’t imagine them thinking that would be acceptable near a place that promotes peace and tranquility. Boggles the mind. They also want to put one in Merrimack but I’m sure where exactly….have to ask my friends. There must be a better way………

    1. These women are wonderful. I spoke briefly to them about a NO PIPELINE sign they had posted in front of the retreat. At the time they were making apple sauce for the local food pantry. The idea of an industrial complex across the street belching fumes and making noise is not conducive to quiet contemplation. Mom attended one of their retreats and they rescued her when she got stuck in the mud, so they are even more dear to me.
