Just got this pic e-mailed to me, as part of the promotional materials for the grand opening of a multi-purpose trail project in my hometown of Concord, NH. This trail is one of the first implemented projects from the Concord 20/20 Vision process, which I was involved in as a member of the Sounding Board.



I just like the pic because it shows a great shot of the state house dome from the other side of the Merrimack River.

More info (for those interested) on Concord 20/20 is at www.concord2020.org

That is a really beautiful shot. I think I need to visit NH very soon.

Pride for your hometown is great!

COOL!

I sometime wonder when people describe a lack of connection to where they are from. Hell, a lack of connection to ANY place. I think that lack of connection would make me feel so completly alone.

Neat pics by the way!

OK....found a nice website from one of the elementary schools, where the kids took some digital pics....here's more of my hometown.....

Sacred Heart Chursh - This is the church I grew up going to. Used to have a school attached, where my mom went to elementary school.



33 Pleasant Street: Built in 1851, where the Concord Coach was first designed and built.


NH Legislative Office Building - Former post office, the post card that I posted in SAC's postcard thread.



The state library - former home to the NH Supreme Court

Back in 1990, I belonged to a youth ministry team based in St. Paul, MN, and we did a retreat at Sacred Heart in Concord. I remember well what a beautiful city it is; a great statehouse and state museum, a nice downtown, beautiful countryside. We spent four weeks in NH, traveling from Berlin all the way down to Jaffrey and Nashua, and did retreats all over: Manchester, Nashua, Hudson, Lebanon, Meredith, Rochester, Portsmouth, Rye, Hampton, Jaffrey, Claremont, Colebrook, some others I forget. Best memories: sitting on Rock Rimmon, walking up the Flume in the snow, Harrisville, Hampton Beach, downtown Portsmouth, Ste. Marie's in Manchester, Monadnock. I wanna go back!

I suggest you listen to the song "Under the Bridge" by the Red Hot Chili Peppers, I love that song, it makes me think of my own city (Jersey City) when I listen to it (even though he says "City of Angels). :)
