Honeymoon Bridge

This bridge was built in 1876 and is just south of the confluence of the Wildcat with the Ellis River by Charles Austin Broughton and his son Frank who were dairy farmers.  It is also named Covered Bridge # 51 by the state of New Hampshire.  The nickname, Honeymoon Bridge, comes from the tradition of lovers kissing under it for good luck.

Silver Cascade

Silver Cascade is a tall mix of plunges and cascades that hop and skip from left to right down the southwestern side of Mount Jackson. The falls continue under US 302, eventually converging with the Saco River below the highway.

Pemigewasset River Bridge

You can’t visit New England without finding and capturing some of the covered bridges.  The Pemigewasset River bridge, located in New Hampshire’s Franconia Notch State Park, is found 1/4 mile up the Flume Gorge Trail.  The bridge was built in 1886.

Sue’s Tree

Have been spending a few days in New Hampshire to see and photograph the fall colors. It’s a long way from California so it was a disappointment to spend our first day in pouring rain.  We decided to take a drive to check things out.  Several miles up the Kancamagus Highway my wife Sue saw this little tree and thought it needed my attention.  Despite cars zooming by and the rain pelting down here it is.
