The Flume Gorge in Franconia Notch New Hampshire

While living in New Hampshire, we had several opportunities to head up North, to the Franconia Notch area. On one of these trips, we stopped of at the Flume Gorge. The Flume Gorge is located at the southern end of Franconia Notch in the Franconia Notch State Park on the flanks of Mount Flume where the water has carved a deep gorge. The trails take you up through this gorge "the flume" and then make their way around and under covered bridges and through the woods. This area is beautiful during the early Fall period, when the leaves are starting to change colors. If you are ever in the New England area, going up to the White Mountain area in New Hampshire is a trip worth making.

Rick,
Beautiful photos! I see we share a love of nature and photography. When I lived in New Hampshire many years ago, my husband and I drove the kids up to the flume one summer. I remember a natural water slide where we joined others who were hopping into the water and sliding down the rapids over smoothed granite rock into a pool below. It was great fun!

I didn't know such a place existed. Your photos, as always, allow me to basically 'walk into it' as if being there. I'd love to visit. Falling water, you know I'm going to love that. You've gotten to see so many amazing places ... glad you're sharing the pics and tales with us!

Your photos are beautiful! I especially love the covered bridges. I don't get to see scenery like this since I live in the desert; Phoenix, AZ. So, it's always fun to check out other places. I found you from L-Jay's blog "My Little Norway". Isn't it fun to travel the world on our computers?

Wonderful photos! That indeed would be a beautiful place to visit. I really like the covered bridges - something I don't see here. Thank you for visiting my flower blog. My nature blog is http://naturemydoorstep.blogspot.com

Both beautiful and primal, it is certainly a place with energy!

The first picture is really breathtaking despite the noise... reminds me a lot of Indiana Jones and Tomb Raider movies. :)

I agree - great shots, and great soundtrack - my 2-year-old's bouncing round the kitchen as I read! Thanks for visiting Carmine Superiore - hope to see you again soon.

Another awesome place. Another must-see! I love those narrow walls in the top image. It reminds me of some fantasy movies.
