Pisgah State Park, New Hampshire

Eight friends went hiking around Kilburn Pond yesterday.
The mosquitoes were insatiable.
But the pleasure of conversation and the beauty of the trail
helped us transcend the discomfort of the welts rising on our skin.
(apologies for the poor quality of this shot. i was scratching and shooting at the same time.)

Please scratch your apology! None needed. This is beautiful! What a place!

But I hate mosquitoes! Hate them! Fortunately, the city of Ocala sprays regularly so we can enjoy being out in the evenings.

Why is it that in cold climes where everything freezes in the winter, mosquitoes are so frightful in the summer?

I mean Minnesota? The mosquito is the state bird!

Have a great day, and I say that unbittenly.

I am just warring with mosquitoes at home, without taking any picture...
Apologies refused, your photo is great!

I agree with the others: the tranquility and beauty of place transcends picture quality.

I have added to my Theme and Variation post to help you put those pesky buildings into context. Enjoy, dear reader ...

I like the feel of this picture. It looks like a wonderful area to hike, except for the skeeters.
