Join me as a write this new chapter of my life.

More from Flume Gorge Hike

 Here and there were spots of fall color on our hike to and from the Flume Gorge at Franconia Notch State Park.  [If you missed the first post on this hike, use the link below this one to go back to older posts.]

Just a bit of color in the far mountains.

Here and there leaves have changed color.

Coming back from the Flume is a lovely wide trail.

Boulders strewn everywhere.

Dan's doing his part to keep this one from tipping over.

I saw an elephant in the woods, too.  See it?

The trail takes us across this covered walkway above the river.

The river looks delightfully cool below.

We ended up in the Visitors' Center.  This stage coach dominates the space.  Look there are seats on top like in the days of Dickens.

On the door is the painting of the Man in the Mountain, New Hampshire's symbol that is no more.

Time to head on to our next adventure? No off to lunch!

Postscript: In answer to John's question on last post about how the 93 year old woman found the Gorge, the description said she was fishing.
