    Default Fall pictures

    Today I drove around the WMNF and a few other places looking for fall colors. I found some, but more importantly, I found several places which will be really good as the color peaks.

    The drive was - Bridgton, Maine - Conway and across the Kanc to Lincoln - north on route 3 to Indianhead Resort - The Basin - views of Cannon Mt - route 302 to Mt Washington Hotel - Cog Base Station - Jefferson Notch Road (9 mile gravel road which is cool) - route 2 east to route 16 north to Errol (drive along the river is wonderful) - south on route 26 by Lake Umbagog - thru Grafton Notch State Park - Bethel - and back home to Bridgton.

    Most of the color was on route 26 in Grafton Notch. But, you could see it starting in other places. One of the pictures I like is

    I heard a bit of a broadcast on the radio that a footbridge will be taken down starting on Monday. I am thinking it is the Lincoln Woods footbridge. Can anyone confirm this?

    In case it is the one, I snapped a picture today

    Nice pictures Brad. I love the birches in the Fall. Nice one of the river too with a bit of color starting to show. Looking forward to seeing lots of nice Fall images over the next few weeks on this thread. Thanks for getting it going.

    It's not that one Brad. There's a discussion on VFTT that talks about which one it is.

    It's really unfortunate that they are removing that bridge. It makes the only option for crossing the river (other than at Lincoln Woods) the stepping stones near Franconia Falls and that isn't an option at high water. Pretty much leaves just a single option for an exit on that side of the Pemi and makes the Franconia Falls tentsite pretty much accessible only from the east side trail from Lincoln Woods.

    The radio report was sure confusing.

    Great shots Brad. Hopefully I will be able to get up North and do some shooting this year when the colors come in. Thanks for sharing and looking forward to the colorful ones later.
