4th of July Weekend – What a great 4th of July weekend! I hope everyone was able to get out and enjoy this incredible stretch of weather. There is no better combination for a traveler than great weather, a long weekend, and your destination being the White Mountains of New Hampshire.

East Branch & Lincoln Railroad – The East Branch & Lincoln Railroad, built by timber baron James E. Henry, was a logging railroad that operated from 1893-1948 in the New Hampshire towns of Lincoln and Franconia. Much of the railroad was in the area we know today as the Pemigewasset Wilderness. If you venture into the Pemi, from the Lincoln Woods Trail, you will be walking the railroad bed of of Henry’s railroad.

During its existence, the East Branch & Lincoln Railroad was sold to the Parker Young Company and then to the Marcalus Manufacturing Company.

And towards the end of its lifespan truck logging played a role in the logging operations.
