If you regularly follow my blog, and the weekly/video photo I would recommend skipping on to paragraph three, specific to this week’s video/photo. I have decided to add a weekly video/photo section to my blog. This blog will display a video or photo, usually highlighting an Adventure, while I might also sneak in some that are humorous, adorable, or just other fun dog moments.
So if you have followed my blog from the beginning you will know that I adopted Shadow as a puppy, and about a year later adopted Buster as a puppy. We had many wonderful years together before experiencing the devastating loss of Buster at just seven. It took a long time for our hearts to heal, but almost a year later we welcomed little Wilma into our world.
Today’s feature is a video from Campton Falls, also known as Beebe Falls in Campton, New Hampshire. Shadow, Wilma, and I Adventured to this falls back in July of 2018. It was a gorgeous, singing Falls, surrounded with spectacular colored rocks. It was a little challenging venturing to the bottom of the Falls, but we managed to get there. Such a lovely Falls! You can read more by typing in Campton/Beede Falls in the search box, but please enjoy this video as a summary of this picturesque Adventure.
Today we visited Beede Falls, located less than a mile on Sandwich Notch Road (on the Sandwich side) in Sandwich, NH. The Falls are about 37 feet tall and form into a beautiful sandy pool below. There is a small cave under it called “Cow Cave”. We were able to explore this little area, and see the Falls from the side. We wandered along the trails in the area, finding a charming bridge nearby. Shadow enjoyed wading in the water, while Wilma preferred chewing on some sticks. There were other dogs visiting, which is always a fun time. This was a lovely spot, and we were lucky to have a perfect spring day to explore. (Rating: 4)
After our visit to Beede Falls we journeyed to West Rattlesnake Mountain. The Trailhead began in Holderness, NH. This hike goes to the summit of West Rattlesnake Mountain. It is about 450 foot elevation gain, and I believe it is about a two mile hike. The trail was well maintained, and definitely good exercise. The summit revealed outstanding views of Squam Lake, and its many islands. There were large boulders, and plenty of places to sit and relax. The breeze was refreshing, creating a wonderful atmosphere to relax. We stayed up at the summit for some time, before heading back down the trail. I was definitely not disappointed with the summit views. (Rating: 4)
