East Branch of the Pemigewasset River – Lincoln, New Hampshire
Scenes of May, White Mountains – The snow is gone here in the White Mountains of New Hampshire, and I have finally stored my snowshoes and traction devices for the season. If you look hard enough though you still can find small pockets of snow in the forest, and of course Tuckerman Ravine still has patches of snow..
May in the White Mountains has been awesome! The spring snow melt combined with heavy rains has made for great waterscape imagery. As the month comes to an end water levels are getting back to normal.
Jackman Brook – North Woodstock, New Hampshire
Jackman Falls, North Woodstock – Jackman Falls are a series of beautiful cascades on Jackman Brook in North Woodstock, New Hampshire. Considered to be a forgotten waterfall these cascades are visited mostly by locals and waterfall enthusiasts. And though we refer to all of the cascades on the brook as Jackman Falls, old documentation indicates that possibly only one of them was the named waterfall.
Like many of the waterfalls in the White Mountains, these cascades were visited in the 1800s. However, the brook was known as Shirt Brook, not Jackman Brook. Sometime in the early 1900s, the name of the brook was changed to Jackman Brook on maps.
