Georgiana Falls

We are a little behind with getting this blog post out, but we were busy with holidays and just life in general.  However, we really wanted to blog about this outdoor adventure because Andrew and Lindsay got a day away to get out on our own (without a 2 year old in tow).  Since we…

Big Rocks and a Bridge

A few weeks ago, our little family headed to a popular summer hiking spot: The Flume in Franconia State Park.  This time of year the trail through the Flume is closed due to dangerous ice that develops through the notch.  Rangers even remove the boards and steps that thousands of tourists walk on in the warmer…
