Last year, Kelly Brush Davisson achieved one of her life goals: to ski Tuckerman’s Ravine — the challenging bowl on Mount Washington in New Hampshire. This past May, she achieved another: She gave birth to her daughter, Dylan.

Ten years ago, those goals might have been different. They might have been to be an All-American skier at Middlebury College, where she was on the Alpine ski team. They might have been to do a lot of things. But on Jan. 18, 2006, in a matter of seconds a clock can never count, her life changed.

Outside Story: Karner blues butterflies making a comeback

Posted on September 4, 2016 |
By Meghan McCarthy McPhaul



Karner Blue.jpg

The Karner blue, New Hampshire’s state butterfly, is a wisp of a thing, a tiny fluttering of silvery-blue wings. Unless you happen to be wandering through a pine barren or black-oak savannah, however, you’re unlikely to spot one.
