"Franconia (or fun at slow shutter speeds)" Franconia by dinhyen

Franconia Travel Guide: 17 reviews and 109 photos

Franconia Notch State Park in the White Mountains is one of New Hampshire's most popular attractions. Every year, especially in autumn, tourists from all corners of the Northeast flock here to gawk at the rushing waters amid a backdrop of yellowing leaves.

Entrance is $8 for Flume Gorge as I recall. Other locations are gratuitous.

This little cascades sneaked under a small bridge on the trail. Mount your camera on a tripod and have fun!

Sentinel Pine Bridge, built in 1939, still sturdy as ever.

Pros and Cons

    Seems like a great place to make waterfall photos if you know how to do it, and you certainly do!

    It was truely sad to hear about the "old man" wasn't it? I'm so grateful that I took my kids there many times for a picnic or walk thru the years. Your pics of the Flume are spectacular!
