Devils Kitchen Gorge, New Hampshire – Devils Kitchen is a small interesting gorge along Bumpus Brook in Randolph, New Hampshire. There are many cascades along the brook to photograph, so plan on being in the area for a few hours. Coosauk Falls in one of the more interesting waterfalls in the area. It seems like I find a new vantage point every visit. Devils Kitchen can be easily reached using the Howker Ridge Trail.
Shoal Pond, Pemigewasset Wilderness – Shoal Pond is a secluded 5-acre pond in the Pemigewasset Wilderness in the New Hampshire White Mountains. It can be reached by hiking the Shoal Pond Trail (off the Appalachian Trail). This pond is one of the unique features of the Pemigewasset Wilderness that makes designated wilderness areas special.
The reflection of the forest and Mount Carrigain in Shoal Pond early in the morning is excellent! And the area surrounding the pond is a great place to see wildlife. Wildlife photographers visiting the pond should bring your big lenses, because there is a good chance of seeing moose.
Quick Update September 25, 2011:
Colors are starting to show in the Northern half of New Hampshire and the White Mountain region. Neither area is at peak yet, but the colors look good. Nice color can be found in the area of Pondicherry Wildlife Refuge in Jefferson, New Hampshire. The above image is from earlier this week.
