Sabbaday Falls, part three.

.

Everywhere I looked there was a beautiful picture waiting to be taken.

.

.

Not to mention videos.

.

.

I love these kind of places. Easy hiking with railed bridges and paths that criss cross over the natural splendor.

.

.

And these were extremely well made, designed to withstand water and rough weather. I can only imagine the force of the falls in the spring, it must be epic.

.

.

For those who are interested:

.

.

And for those of us with bad knees?

.

.

Random benches to take a break.

.

.

While I agree with the ❤️ sentiment, I dislike the defacement.

.

.

The return path when you’ve had your fill.

.

.

Onward…

.

Sabbaday Falls, part two.

.

Mother Nature is amazing and we thoroughly enjoy visiting some of her special places.

.

.

Sabbaday Falls was one of them.

.

.

The walkways and paths are cut into the rock and follow the natural trail.

.

.

There’s the husband taking pictures beside a really big rock. That says it all.

.

.

Did I enjoy all the stair climbing? No.

.

.

But it was totally worth the discomfort and I smiled through the pain.

.

.

Rocks and trees. Trees and rocks. I was a seriously happy camper.

.

.

The falls spray water everywhere and some of the paths were slippery.

.

.

But damn, it sure was beautiful.

.

.

And the sturdy walkway was impressive in and of itself.

.

.

.

If you’re ever in the area? Go!

Foliage, the required selfie with foliage, a personalized warning and Sabbaday Falls, part one.

.

We didn’t have to look any further than out our balcony to find a stunning vista of changing leaves. Every morning the color was slightly different.

.

.

And you know I couldn’t resist that.

.

.

On our way out that morning I noticed a sign I hadn’t spotted the night before… and I had a hard time believing it wasn’t put there just for me.

.

.

No worries Pollard Brook Resort, I didn’t see any to feed… though I do take exception to the word varmint. In my experience, there are far more two legged ones of those.

.

.

Ah… I do love the mountains.

.

.

On the agenda that morning? Sabbaday Falls off the Kancamagus highway.

.

.

It won’t surprise you to learn my husband’s first thought when he read this was, “I wonder if the tools are still there…” Good thing he didn’t have a shovel handy.

.

.

It was just under half a mile hike to the falls.

.

.

Past a babbling brook and on a wide, leaf lined path.

.

.

As the elevation increased, fencing.

.

.

It was so beautiful. So peaceful…

.

.

A little farther on and the brook turned into a pool.

.

.

Surrounded by glacial boulders. I was in rock heaven…

.

.

And the husband was taking pictures, so you know it was good.

.

.

We’ve driven by this area numerous times but never took the time to stop. Clearly that was a mistake.

.

.

It took 10,000 years for water to wear down the rock and form the falls.

.

.

With my bad knee, it took me nearly half that time to climb all the stairs.
