Throwback Adventure – Fall of Song – New Hampshire

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.

In August 2015 Shadow, Buster and I Adventured to the Fall of Song waterfall in Moultonborough, New Hampshire. The Fall of Song Waterfall is a forty foot waterfall, sourced by the Shannon Brook. It Falls at the end of a boardwalk trail.

We ventured on our hike to Fall of Song on a warm summer day. It appeared that we may have taken the long trail, however, what better way to find a gorgeous waterfall. The trail took us above a brook and up a slope for awhile before the trail evened out. The trail was not marked well, but we kept trekking, hoping to make it to the final destination.

We caught site of the waterfall long before arriving on foot, a picturesque site. We crossed a little bridge, and spent some time at the brook, giving other visitors time to pass along. Once we arrived to the edge of the waterfall we were happy to find the place to ourselves. We took our time viewing the spectacular Falls. It was grand in height, and peaceful in song. We relaxed on the boardwalk, the boys napping, as we treasured the sound of the flowing Falls. I took numerous photographs, and even attempted some videos. As you will see if you view my blog to the very end, I have still not gained any video skills since this time. However, I still decided to share this video memory, providing a clear sensory experience.

We spent a good amount of time at the Falls before heading back. We had a terrifying journey back coming face to face with a bear on the side of the trail. Shockingly the boys did not see him and a quickly turned around hustling back to the waterfall. A little panicked I found an alternate trail back to the car, realizing that there was an alternate auto road to the Falls. The gate was closed at the end, but somehow I managed to get all three of us to the other side. Definitely some good stories to add to this memorable Adventure (Rating: 4).
