Anyone who has spent some time visiting the pages of Lost Cowboy knows that my favorite spot on earth is the view of Mount Chocorua as seen across Lake Chocorua from Tamworth, New Hampshire. I have featured dozens of pictures of the sight under the “Checking in on Chocorua” title over the years and stop in every time I am back in New Hampshire. Well, today I got to experience the view in a whole new way – actually from the lake while kayaking – a bucket list item from sure (if I had a bucket list).

The view was as stunning as ever and it was great to be out in the middle of the lake – listening to the loons playing and taking it all in. It was a good day. I took many more great pictures which I will curate and post soon – but I just needed to share this experience right away.

About Chocorua Lake: “Chocorua Lake, also commonly called Lake Chocorua, is a relatively small lake in east-central New Hampshire in the town of Tamworth, New Hampshire.  It is located in the Ossipee Lake watershed south of the White Mountains region.  The main inflow into the lake is the Chocorua River from the north, which drains the south side of Mount Chocorua.  Stratton Brook flows into the west side of the lake. Chocorua Lake is about a mile in length and a half a mile across at its widest part and covers just over 220 acres.  Most of Chocorua Lake is quite shallow with an average depth of 12 feet; the maximum depth is 31 feet.  At the south end of the lake is the much-photographed rustic Narrows Bridge, and downstream from that is the Little Lake.”
