One of the moose-related show-and-tell items at the start:
Right off the bat we got a quick glimpse of a moose heading from a wallow into the woods. Cool! As the sun set, we didn't see any more animals for a while. But we caught a nice sunset at Umbagog Lake:
After it got dark the fun began. We saw a moose and her calf, very exciting. Also a bull right next to the road. I think we saw a total of 8 or 9 moose that evening and learned a lot about what to look for, and more importantly, how to hopefully never hit one.
I managed to capture one moose sighting on video:
Awesome tour, we're so glad we did that.
On Sunday we took a roundabout route in the direction of home, starting through Conway (cute little town but full of people heading south) and over the Kancamagus Highway (much less traveled). A covered bridge caught our attention:
Yoga on the bridge:

One of the scenic stops along the way up the Swift River:
From Lincoln we worked our way up Franconia Notch and the multiple destinations. My favorite was a short hike to see the Flume Gorge:
Lovely sets of stairs giving access up the gorge:
The beautiful waterfall at the top:
Another covered bridge, this one for the walking path (with a large tree as the bottom support, moved here after it fell many years ago):
Some trees just don't have it easy:
The Basin, another fun stop and short hike:
Lovely little creek through here:
The Old Man of the Mountain historic site, for viewing the spot where he used to be before falling off the side of the mountain, sadly:
A "profiler" for people to see what it used to look like:
Time to head home... we thoroughly enjoyed our tour of northern New Hampshire, that was great fun!
