Marking the solstice at sunset in Lyme

  • From left, Gastón de los Reyes, of Boston and Pomfret, Linde McNamara, of Etna, her daughter, Diana McNamara, of Scotland, and John Sibbert, of Scotland, walk the mile back to their cars from the Lyme Pinnacle as the sun sets in Lyme, N.H., on the shortest day of the year, Tuesday, Dec. 21, 2021. The four joined the Upper Valley Land Trust for its annual winter solstice hike at the conservation area. In Aberdeenshire, the region of Scotland where Diana McNamara and Sibbert live, the day is more than two-and-a-half hours shorter than the almost nine hours of daylight in Lyme on the solstice.
