My family went to Flume Gorge, up in the  Franconia Notch State Park of New Hampshire. It’s one of the coolest gorges, with walls 70-90 feet high in places, and a nature trail that continues through the mountain forest, past a waterfall and across a covered bridge. There’s something magical about the place, when you’re standing there on the boardwalk with a steep stream running past you and walls of ancient rock rising up on either side of you. It’s like stepping into another world for a moment. And so I’d like to share that moment with you through the pictures I took.

As a writer, pictures immediately start me thinking of story ideas, and let my imagination run wild, so perhaps a few ideas can come from these?

I wanted to add some music to give this post atmosphere, so if you’d like to listen to the youtube video below while you scroll through the photos, Autumn Forest is a beautiful, mysterious soundtrack. Adrian Von Ziegler is a talented artist and has many Celtic songs on youtube that I often listen to. This song is 20 min. but you’d never realize it with the way the music changes and progresses; it never stays the same.

The Flume Gorge

This tree had a dug out knothole, and growing inside it was this mushroom. I’d like to imagine it being the room of a fairy, with the mushroom used for a glowing lamp at night. 🙂

Venturing through this forest has made me wonder if, indeed, Ents are living among us without us knowing. Take note of the way they seem to be walking or reaching with arms and legs…

  1. I will have to put this on my list of places to visit in the US. 🙂 Hey, I just came over because I MISS you, my friend! I haven’t been in the blogosphere much this summer, but you are one the top of my list of very best blogger friends. How are things going? oooo…forgot to post this. Enjoying the music too much. 😀

  3. I could’ve sworn I had commented on this post when it first went live… (*blushes*)

    What a gorgeous place. I wonder how different (and more colorful) it would look as the foliage changes from green to the reds, yellows, and oranges of autumn. It’s a great reminder of the natural beauty we can find close to home, granted that we remember to look.

    • I imagine the forest is beautiful during the fall, too, though the moss and lichen wouldn’t be as green as they are in these photos during summer. Speaking of fall, it hasn’t been as colorful this year, yet. How is it looking in Mass?

      • We don’t have much foliage down here right now. Some of the trees have started to change – and my parents’ burning bushes are gorgeous with their bright red leaves. But I think we’re another week or two away from peak colors.
