Throwback Adventure – Echo Lake (Fraconia Notch State Park)

I will have sections of my blog that I will title “Throwback Adventure”, and will plan on posting them every Thursday.  These are journeys we have taken before I started the blog, but are well worth sharing.

Echo Lake is a beautiful lake in Fraconia Notch State Park in the White Mountains of New Hampshire.  It is 38.2 acres and sits at 1,931 feet elevation.  It is on the northern side of the Fraconia Notch and offers breathtaking views of the Lafayette and Cannon Mountains.  The water of the lake flows toward the Connecticut River.  There is a swimming beach, and a trail around the Lake.

We have frequented Echo Lake many times over the years.  It is an absolutely gorgeous location, especially in Fall.  Often we have stopped just to relax and take photos, while on one journey my Mom enjoyed some time painting, while Shadow, Wilma, and I traversed the Lake trail.  We mostly have visited the Lake during Fall, but just this past Winter we traveled to view the scenery.  A much duller scene in the Winter, but yet I was humored as the Lake appeared no where in site, covered in snow.   It is quite magical to view the changes of season, unique to our beautiful New England.  I would highly recommend exploring Echo Lake.  I will include photos from three of our adventures below (Rating:  5).

I had to include this amazing photo that my Mother took of Shadow, Buster, and I.  It is one I will treasure ALWAYS!  Little did I know that less then a week later Buster would leave our word, at just seven years old.  He was an amazing love in our life, and I miss him so much!  A wonderful memory forever graved in our hearts!
