For the last couple of years I have been walking a recreation of the Chartres Cathedral Labyrinth that is recreated on the floor of the Peterborough, NH Town House. It's a great way to start off the new year and reflect upon the old.

Ipswich River Wildlife Sanctuary offers more than 12 miles of trails that invite you to explore the forests, meadows, and wetlands. A drumlin and esker, key landscape features, were formed by a glacier 15,000 years ago. Boulders stacked to create arches and a grotto setting, constructed in 1905, provide an adventurous walk along the Rockery Trail.
