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 Shadow, Wilma, and I visited the Bump Bridge in Campton, New Hampshire. The Bump Bridge was originally built in 1877, before being rebuilt in 1972. It crosses the Beebe River.
We had a short adventure to the Bump Bridge, after a busy weekend of adventures and fun. The Bridge provided one car traffic,and allowed minimal visibility to drivers. Therefore we took several jogs through the Bridge, but did not linger inside. We ambled down the road a bit, attempting to find a photograph from the River. Finally we were able to locate a trail to the River, which definitely was appreciated. Shadow sat in the water, while Wilma provided some good entertainment with a bark and growl at her adorable reflection. The Bridge was very simple, but yet we were excited to cross of yet another Bridge from our White Mountain adventures (Rating: 3).
Yesterday Shadow, Wilma, and I visited Campton Falls (also known as Beebe Falls) in Campton, New Hampshire. Campton Falls is a traditional waterfall, that is approximately fifteen feet in height. The Falls drops to a gorge, and rushes into the Beebe River below.
We were impressed with our adventure to Campton Falls today. Campton Falls is located on the side of the road, however, it took us some time to find a way to get down to the Falls for a more personal view. The trails were steep, rocky, and somewhat hazardous. I actually received some cuts and scratches with an unplanned skid down the rocks. Even Shadow and Wilma appeared hesitant at moments. However, slowly, and carefully we made it down to the base of at least the main falls. The waterfall, and rushing gorge were beyond brilliant, the music delightful. The rocks surrounding the area added a unique touch, gorgeous in color, and uneven in shape.
I was ecstatic that Shadow found a little pool, as the current was strong if you wandered too far. So although we made it, I was somewhat disappointed that there was not a great place for them to sit and relax, as we had to be extra cautious about our footing. Of course I was still very happy that we were able to visit this stunning location. Definitely a spectacular waterfall which I would recommend to others (Rating: 4)
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)
Today Shadow, Wilma and I visited the Blair Bridge in Campton, New Hampshire. The Blair Bridge is a wooden bridge that crosses the Pemigewasset River. It was originally built in 1829, but was damaged from Tropical Storm Irene in 2011, and was closed until repairs were completed in 2015. The bridge allows for vehicle traffic, with one vehicle permitted to cross at a time.
We had quite the picturesque visit to the Blair Bridge. I believe we have stopped their in the past, but unfortunately I was not able to locate the photographs from previous trips (if I find them at a later date I will edit my blog with those additional photographs.). The Blair Bridge is a long bridge, highlighted by rushing River water, and the gorgeous reflection below. We immediately found a path to the shore, allowing us to look up at in awe at this magnificent structure. The other side of a bridge has a restaurant, with available outdoor seating. We strolled in front of the restaurant to check out the other side of the bridge. It was a bit more difficult to go inside the bridge, due to traffic, however we were able to capture a couple shots. Definitely one of my favorite New England covered bridges (Rating: 5).
