Franconia Ridge Trail (2008) – White Mountains, New Hampshire
Trailside History, White Mountains – The history of the trail system in the New Hampshire White Mountains is amazing; early 19th-century trail builders are true legends of the White Mountains, and they are forever implanted into the history books. Trails built in the 1800s, such as Crawford Path, Davis Path, and Lowe’s Path, are still in use today. And while the building of hiking trails is a great topic, there are also many interesting features along the trails.
Trailside features such as Cow Cave, Gibbs Brook dam, Walton’s Cascade, and the many abandoned cellar holes along the trail system have some intriguing history attached to them, but they are often unnoticed by today’s hikers. So this blog article focuses on a few trailside features.

Wetlands, White Mountains – As a photographer, who photographs the environment, I love the diversity of subject matter the New Hampshire White Mountains offers. One day I am photographing mountain landscapes, the next day abandoned historical sites, the next day human impact and the next day beautiful wetland areas. There really is no shortage of subject matter here in the White Mountains.
When most think of the White Mountains, they envision beautiful mountain ranges and not wetlands. Today, I want to share with you a few images of picturesque wetland areas in the White Mountains. I find the landscape of a wetlands area to be very interesting, and some of them hold secrets to the past. If you’re photographer looking for new subject matter to shoot, maybe these images will give you some ideas.
