I remember visiting the Flume Gorge when Alissa was young over 20 years ago. We hiked the gorge with my sister Jean and my nephews Michael and John. Along the trail I told stories of fairies and bears. Alissa was quite used to my fantastical stories, her cousins though were not. And I remember Michael specifically was only interested in stories that were real. Here’s some pictures from the summer of 1995.
Back to the Flume: The Flume is a natural gorge extending 800 feet at the base of Mount Liberty. The walls of Conway granite rise to a height of 70 to 90 feet and are 12 to 20 feet apart. What I love about the flume in the summer is how much cooler it is inside. This was my first fall walk, and the drop in temperature was less dramatic. Below are some pictures from this visit.
