Guy Shorey's Mountain Vistas Photo Gallery

These photos are some of the many historical slides archived and preserved within the Gladys Brooks Memorial Library located at the Weather Discovery Center.

Franconia Range
Franconia Range from Whitefield.

Kinsman's Notch
Asa Kinsman arrived with his family in the 1780's and subsequently two mountains and a notch south of Cannon acquired the family name. Crumbling rocks from cliffs north of the notch comprise a jumble through with Lost River splashes and disappears. The River was supposedly discovered by the Jackman brothers, Royal and Lyman, when Royal fell through a hole, and into the river below.

Cherry Mountain
Northwest of Mount Washington, off on its own, sits Cherry Mountain. On July 10, 1885, a slide estimated to contain a million tons of debris let loose from its slope, wiping out the farm and cattle of Oscar Stanley, and killing one of his workmen.

Franconia Notch
As you approach Franconia Notch from the south you are greeted by Cannon Mountain, Eagle Cliff, and "The Agonies"-- a ridge of Mount Lafayette, respectively from left to right. Although the roadway has changed since this photo was taken, the scenery is still unmistakable.

Dixville Notch
