Summer Internship

Since May 20, I’ve been in beautiful New England, in the Upper Valley right at the border between New Hampshire and Vermont, for a summer internship at the Valley News. It’s a great place with great people, and I get to cover a wide variety of assignments. Here’s a small slideshow with a selection of the stuff that I did so far. I will post a similar slideshow at the end of each month. Enjoy!

$10 Trips – Devil’s Backbone

Here’s another piece of the $10 Trips series. It’s about Devil’s Backbone, a marvellous lime stone ridge in the Cedar Creek district of the Mark Twain National Forest, about 20 miles south of Columbia. At first sight it doesn’t seem very spectacular, but the beauty of the place lies within the several, well-hidden rock outcroppings that offer breathtaking vistas over the Cedar Creek below. It’s a paradise for bird watchers, and I spent six straight hours on one of the rock outcroppings without moving an inch. It’s just incredible there, and this place definitely is one of my top favourites. Enjoy the show!

$10 Trips – the Finger Lakes State Park

Yesterday I spent the whole day in the Finger Lakes State Park and the Rocky Fork Lakes Conservation Area. A former strip mining area, the place has been reseeded and the coal pits filled with water so that they form a vast maze of finger-shaped lakes. The parks offer something for everyone. Whether you like swimming, scuba diving, motocross racing, mountainbiking, bird watching or just plain, old hiking – you’ll get it here. Enjoy the show!
