Oh wait..it's June ( well it did not feel like it for much of the day )

Anyway we got on the mistress and revisited Andres art park.. basically a mountain with various sculptures by artists from around the world strewn about it. There are works in stone and steel all over the place ..some not much more then a block of granite..some a tad more imaginative

The table in the parking lot



These guys are cool



The eastern view serves as a back drop for this work



I liked this one


When we visited last there was a couch on the summit looking westward.. since we all know mediation is big in the east however this metal and granite couch better fulfills the need to just sit there and chant
Ohmmm Ohmmm Ohmmm



A King MUST have a throne



What treasures lurk within the dimension behind the vault door?



We spent a good two hours walking the trails and there is still more to see.. if you live in NH , MA or VT you can get to Andres via route 13 it is close to Parkers Maple Barn .. which by the way is not a shabby place to get yourself some breakfast

Afteward we went through Hollis in a cold cold wind..brrrr! They leveled most of the abandoned buildings at Woodmont ( a defunct apple orchard ) but the Hollis Ice House still stands ( kind of anyway )





Stopped in Amherst Village for a bit then putted home and warmed up!!
