Yesterday Wilma and I Adventured to the White Mountains of New Hampshire. The White Mountains are a mountain range that cover a large part of New Hampshire, and also a portion of western Maine. The White Mountains include 48 peaks at over 4,000 feet. The White Mountains are popular for skiing, hiking, and ATVing.
We had a spectacular Adventure to the White Mountains. I set my alarm for 3am (yikes!) to get an early start on our day-trip. We visited some of our favorite spots, and enjoyed every minute! We did some hiking, waterfall chasing, and relaxed at some of our preferred scenic spots. It was our first time in the Mountains since we lost Shadow which made me very sad. So glad we had so many Adventures with both Buster and Shadow in the endless beauty of the White Mountains. Furever precious memories! ❤️
Since we have Adventured to and blogged about all of these locations previously I decided to write my blog differently today. Below you will see each location with photos and videos, and two or three sentences about each. I have placed the waterfalls in their own category as many of my visitors are waterfall fanatics. In addition I will add the link to my original post so you can click on that if you are interested in reading more. Feel free to ask any questions about these Adventures through the contact form or in the comments. The White Mountains are definitely one the most beautiful spots in New England!
The Basin/Pemi Trail
The Basin/Pemi Trail is a gorgeous location filled with cascades and waterfalls. It can be crowded during the summer months as is a magnificent place to cool down and relax. I discovered this location with Buster, Shadow, and My Mom and it quickly became one of my favorites.

Ammonoosuc Lake Trail
Ammonoosuc Lake Trail is one of my favorites, although short it is quiet, and gorgeous! I first discovered this Trail when working weekends in the White Mountains with Shadow and Wilma. Not easy to get a kayak there but that sure would be magical!

The Basin-Cascades Trail
The Basin-Cascades Trail can be found at the Basin, and eventually connects to other trails including Lonesome Lake. It is filled with waterfalls, and cascades, and has gorgeous mountain views. I discovered the Trail with Shadow and just love it!

Kinsman Falls is located on the Basin-Cascades Trail. I especially love Kinsman Falls as it is unique, you can get close with a climb, and I discovered it by accident. It is generally a quiet location, and is very peaceful.

Baby Flume is located in the Basin on the Pemi Trail. The water flow is great although it is a short cascade. Again, it is not one I would declare a waterfall, it is listed as so!

Boise Rock is not overly appealing, but if you are into rocks and geology it definitely is your place. I have special memories posing with Buster there, on a trip we had knowing he would not live long due to a terminal diagnosis. The area around Boise Rock provides lovely views of the Mountains, especially in the fall.

I first discovered Wiley Pond with Shadow, Buster, and My Mom, and have one of my Mom’s brilliant photographs framed from this location. It is scenic spot that has a short trail, and has other trail beginnings. This especially is great for those who want to appreciate the gorgeous scenery and are not able to hike.

Saco Lake Trail
This Trail is located right on the road across from AMC Lodge on Route 302. It is very short, but provides some fun walkways above the Trail. We love it as it is unique, and picturesque.
**I took a video but it did not seem to take – darn!
