Bob had been inspired back in January when the U.S. Mint released its latest ‘America the Beautiful’ series quarter, depicting our familiar and famous view of Mt. Chocorua.
Focusing on our side of the mountain and the lake, Bob told vivid tales of early painters and explorers, Abenaki rug-weavers, iron-workers, preachers, Civil War generals, a murder or two, Polar explorers, ice-harvesters, CCC camps, Pulitzer Prize-winners, geologists, Japanese gardens, botanists and birders! Bob highlighted the little-known 1820s summit sketches of White Mountain School painter Thomas Cole, and the far-sighted preservation of ‘The View’ by Chocorua summer residents dating back to the 1880s.

While growing up in Florida, Bob's love of nature, history and art was fueled by family camping trips, Boy Scouts, and travel with friends. By age 10 he had been to all 48 contiguous United States and two foreign countries. As volunteer coordinator, Bob practices what he preaches, volunteering with the Osher Life Long Learning program and a number of local historical societies and organizations. He enjoys hiking, kayaking, campfires, cook-outs, swimming, snow shoeing and dog sledding with his dogs, Tug and Fenway. Tug is a Chinook sled dog, New Hampshire's State Dog breed, who likes to celebrate New England's changing seasons by helping friends with farm chores such as ice harvesting, maple sugaring, haying, and harvesting.
