What a wonderful drive .... we set off early morning yesterday and took all day in beautiful autumn sunshine to drive along the Kancamagus Highway and then in a loop north from Woodstock , Franconia State Park and back via Crawford Notch and Bartlett , then along Bear Notch Road to our base in North Conway (- probably about 120 miles )
There are many scenic overlooks and waterfalls and hikingtrails along the way....beautiful mountain views and colours of the trees all along the route.
The best hike of the day was Flume Gorge - where a basalt dike has cut into the granite at a geological fault and as it erodes more quickly than granite there is a steep sided canyon with the river running through. Wooden walkways and steps enable you to walk right along the canyon to the falls at the top. Lovely. I can't add too much to this in words - let the fotos speak for the delights of this drive.
Last night was day 2 of eating the MASSIVE pizzas we had ordered the night before - we should have known better that 1 pizza would have actually fed
four people...they were certainly delicious but I don't want to see pizza again for a while.
It's a rainy day today ( Tuesday) and we are happy to spend some "downtime" combined witha visit to the large retail park of Outlet Stores.
