Waterfalls on the to-do list: Franconia Notch

My last visit to Franconia Notch State Park featured a visit to the ski museum there. The trip before that included a long walk on the bike trail. The one before that was a hike up Mt. Pemigewasset. But wait…there’s more.

I guess I’ll just have to go back there sometime.

Mt. Pemigewasset

This is what a perfect summer day in New Hampshire looks like. I joined two friends for a drive to Franconia Notch and a hike up forested Mt. Pemigewasset to its summit ledges, where there was nothing to do but enjoy the view. The Franconia Ridge is more than I can handle at this point. Mt. Pemigewasset, while still a challenge for me, has manageable trails. A wonderful daytrip!
