October 20, 2018 – Lincoln Woods – New Hampshire

Yesterday Shadow, Wilma, and I Adventured to Lincoln Woods a location in Lincoln, New Hampshire, along the Kancamangus Highway. We have been there before with Buster, and with My Mom. Lincoln Woods is a scenic area with many trails that enter the Pemigewasset Wilderness of the White Mountains. It is one of the first stops on the East side of the Kancamangus Highway.

Shadow, Wilma, and I had a refreshing Adventure to the Lincoln Woods trail. We have been there in just about every season, and it is one of the most extraordinary trails I have found, maybe even my favorite location for an Adventure. The area is absolutely gorgeous, beginning with a suspended bridge, to trails along the Pemigewasset River to streams along the way, to splendid mountain views, to scenic trails throughout. I would guess I have been there about five times and each time am awed by the beauty.

On today’s hike I was overjoyed to find another bridge across the River, as on our last visit Shadow almost did not make it across the suspended bridge. He appeared quite unstable with the swinging of the bridge and completely froze about halfway across. Therefore, I was extra pleased to find an alternate route. This alternate route also provided us a new and scenic angle of the River and suspended bridge. After crossing the bridge and enjoying the views we headed on our hike. Highlights of today’s Adventure included: time at the River’s edge, for some digging, and rock climbing, some sips from the streams along the way, colorful fall foliage, and and magnificent mountain views along the trail. It was a very cool day, but our hiking kept us warm and enthused. Although crowded this time of year the many trails helped mask the numerous number of tourists. One of those Adventures that I really cannot put into words, as you MUST Adventure this incredible location. As you might guess I would recommend a Fall visit in the colorful foliage of New England. I will include photographs from various trips we have taken and may add some on the future (Rating: 5).

July 27, 2018 – New Hampshire – Livermore Falls

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)
