Today Shadow, Wilma and I visited Livermore Falls in Campton, New Hampshire. Livermore Falls is a cascade falls that flows through a rocky gorge, with an approximate twenty five foot drop. The Livermore Falls is sourced from the Pemigewasset River and is known for it’s rushing, whitewater currents. There is a small beach area near the falls.
We enjoyed our adventure to the Falls. It was a short walk from the parking lot, which was located right on Route 3. Almost immediately the sound of rushing water could be heard. We crossed the railroad track, and followed the fence until we got to an area with a view. We could see of the Falls, and also peered far down the river, spotting a scenic metal bridge. Past the bridge there appeared to be a tiny beach area that was heavily populated. We then walked further, heading down a steep jaunt to reach the beach area. We waded in the water which was perfectly cold, for a warm summer day.
Shadow and Wilma enjoyed some time playing, and digging in the soft sand. It never fails that Shadow and Wilma become immediately thrilled when stepping on a beach, maybe inspired by sand to dig, or just enthusiastic fans of the beach life. It invariably brings a smile to my face, as their energy is heightened. We relaxed for some time on the beach. The sound of rushing water was just right, and helped to mask the industrial feel of this location. Unfortunately, I did see a lot of trash which slightly dampened my experience. However, nothing stops us from enjoying every moment of our adventures (Rating: 3)
