The best sentiment I could dredge-up relative to my recent hikes is the somewhat overused adage that says "if you can't beat 'em, join 'em". The weather here in northern NH (and most of New England) continues to be a bit on the damp and dreary side. So, it seems appropriate to just go with the flow (pun intended!) and do some weather-appropriate hikes.
On Saturday (21-May-2011), my friend Marty and I decided to hike the first mile of the Beaver Brook Trail just so we could witness the spectacular display of cascades along that segment of trail. We had no intentions on this particular day of hiking the full length of the trail to the summit of Mt. Moosilauke. Our destination was solely to the area along the trail known as the Beaver Brook Cascades.
We certainly were NOT disappointed with the venue we chose! It was quite an exhibition! Shown below is just one of the many cascades we saw along the way. For anyone who might have some interest in seeing more photos taken during our hike, then please click HERE to be linked to my Blog. I've included additional snapshots not only of the Beaver Brook Cascades, but also some snapshots taken from a couple of other "watery hikes" over the past few days.
