First, can MP just say, wow! It’s been well over a month since she’s posted here. She forgets how busy the start of the school year can be for her family. That’s why whenever Columbus Day weekend rolls around, it’s a gift to sleep in, catch up on a few to-dos around the house, and explore our home state.

Now that school is back in full swing, MP finds herself daydreaming about summer adventures with family. One of her favorite memories is a morning hike to Moxie Falls in the West Forks. At a vertical drop of over 90 feet, the waterfall is one of the highest in New England.

The hike to Moxie Falls is short – just .6 of a mile one way, making it an easy walk with kids or dogs in tow. This well-groomed trail is flat and features some fun little climbing spots along the way, such as boulders and felled trees.

In the spirit of feeling hopeful, we’re sharing pictures of one of our favorite new hiking spots—Rines Forest in Cumberland. We visited on a spring afternoon and had so much fun playing in the streams, throwing stones, and muddying our boots.

A fall trip to Wallingford’s Fruit House in Auburn is a Cute Potato family tradition, dating back to when DP was a wee lad. The space has changed over the years—there’s a big, backyard play area, a farm store brimming with toys and food gifts, and more cars in the parking lot. We go to the orchard to buy apples and cider, but our main reason for visiting is to indulge and enjoy Wallingford’s delicious homemade donuts.

The classic bakery reminds MP of a New Jersey farm she visited as a child. No matter how old you are, there’s something magic about pressing your face against the glass to watch the donuts come hot off the conveyor belt. (more…)
