Yesterday Shadow, Wilma, My Mom, and I visited Moose State Park in Gorham, New Hampshire. Moose State Park is located in the White Mountains, occupying approximately 755 square acres of land. It houses the Peabody and Moose Rivers, which feed the warming pond, and swimming area in the Park. Moose State Park is a popular location for biking, camping, and fishing.
We were excited to have my Mom join us as we embarked on our Adventure to Moose State Park. We began our visit on the Perkins Path trail. This loop circled through the forest, at times paralleling the Rivers. We savored the little details along the path. There was a cave-like formation atop a huge bolder, gigantic circular rocks, and colorful mushrooms along the way. Midway on the loop we located a wooden bridge crossing over the River. Definitely an ideal location for some photographs, and videos. After finishing at the bridge we continued on the trail taking in the moments,on this beautiful day.
Upon completing the loop we walked a little further finding the camping areas, some modern bridges, and the “warming pool”. Shadow enjoyed a swim in this “pool”, while Wilma rolled around in the grass. It was nice to see some additional features of this park.
The main highlight of our afternoon was finding some fun rocks along the River to rest on, dip our feet, and relax. The River was frigid, numbing our feet, yet adding the perfect therapy to our soles. We enjoyed each others company, while taking in the sounds of the River. Shadow took a dip in the River, while Wilma found some chewing sticks. Some attempted selfies, and laughs, as memories were formed. And although Moose State Park quite simple, we savored our time at Moose State Park. (Rating: 3, Company: Exemplary!)
