I’m finally getting around to recapping our Fall Getaway! Stop now and do not continue reading if hearing about and seeing gorgeous scenery and beautiful fall colors (and selfies of Nik and I) are not your thing. Because I’m about to gush. Fair warning!
Monday - We hit the road and drove from Watertown, NY to Lincoln, NH. It took us awhile, but I’m so glad we took the “scenic” route.
Our first stop was a bakery in a gas station for yummy goodies, hot tea and coffee.
The minute we headed east, the scenery started unfolding before our eyes.
We drove through the middle of the Adirondack mountains and stopped for a
wonderful view of White Face Mountain.
My iPhone pictures do not do this justice - but it was a gorgeous sight!
And we even chose to take a ferry across to VT!
We were one of the front cars - so we decided to enjoy the view from inside.
Inside or outside the car - the view was great!
Once we arrived in Burlington, we found their downtown-market-area,
walked around and stopped for lunch.
See the wooden street vendor in the right of the picture below?
That is where I had the best taco I have had since living in the northeast. Delicious!
And then… we stopped for Pizza and ate outside while people-watching.
After lunch we hit the road again - arrived in Lincoln NH -
ate at a great burger place and called it a night!
Stopping along the road for a selfie with the gorgeous fall colors!
About the Flume Gorge: The Flume is a natural gorge extending 800 feet at the base of Mount Liberty. The walls of Conway granite rise to a height of 70 to 90 feet and are 12 to 20 feet apart.
Starting our hike up to the gorge!
The entire hike was breath-takingly beautiful. We had the best time seeing the scenery!
We walked up the stairway that you see in the pictures to get to the top of the Flume.
Again, it was so hard to capture the beauty of this place, from my phone!
You can “google” Flume Gorge for more pics if you want.
After making Nik take my weekly “Baby D” picture - I made him take one!
