Caves, Gorges and Waterfalls! Oh My! [VIDEO]
Over Columbus Day weekend, the family spent some quality time in the White Mountains of NH. The first thing we had to do was take the Kancamags Highway. Two things were on our 'to do list' - The Lost River and The Flume Gorge.
First off, if you think Maine has a corner on the market for pretty leafs - nope. The White Mountains had it going on!
We picked the Lost River to visit because it's all about gorges and caves! Count me in!
The waterfalls and gorges were really cool, and the stairs they built to walk around was just as fun! This is Paradise Falls, one of the prettier falls.
But it was all about the caves. There were several. But the most challenging was called The Lemon Squeezer. You actually have to fit through an area first to see if you CAN fit through the appropriately named Lemon Squeezer. I made it - barely...
After The Lost River, it was off the the Flume in Franconia Notch State Park.
Apparently, we were not the only ones with this brilliant idea to go to the Flumes. Uh, it was packed!
It was worth it...
We stayed at a place called Indian Head Resort (um...a little exaggeration with the resort part) but it was great! Had all the things you need. Food, pool, game room. Done. Oh and a view of Indian Head! Who knew it was a mountain?
I know, I know. But truly....look realllly close. It looks like the head of a Native American.
I love sta-cationing in Maine. I love my state - but it was kinda nice to visit our neighbors to the south.
