Echo Lake, Franconia Notch – Many photographers who visit the New Hampshire White Mountains are interested in roadside attractions that can be easily reached. So today I am going to share a great location, Echo Lake, in the northern section of Franconia Notch State Park.

From a history point of view, Franconia Notch is amazing. One of the more interesting events that took place in Franconia Notch was on Echo Lake. According to the book “A History of Cannon Mountain: Trails, Tales and Ski Legends” By Meghan McCarthy McPhaulan an event called the “Road-E-O” car race was held on Echo Lake when it was frozen during the 1950s to raise funds for the Franconia Ski Club (FSC). The FSC was founded in 1933, and they are one of the reasons why Cannon Mountain is what it is today.

An Evolving Landscape, White Mountains

Trestle abutment at the Redrock Brook crossing along Franconia Brook Trail in the Pemigewasset Wilderness of New Hampshire. The Franconia Brook Trail follows the old railroad bed of the East Branch & Lincoln Railroad. This was a logging railroad that operated from 1893 - 1948. In 2011 high waters from Tropical Storm Irene caused most of the landscape stone abutment to collapse.

An Evolving Landscape, White Mountains – It amazes me how much the landscape of the White Mountains changes over time. Many visitors to the White Mountains think of the area as being "stuck in time" because of its national forest designation. The reality is lots of change occurs naturally and by man. I thought it would be interesting to show scenes that no longer exist in the White Mountains. These scenes all disappeared over the last ten years.
